Pooja Dadwal is an Indian actor who made her debut starring opposite Salman Khan in Veergati in 1995. However, the actor faded into oblivion with her subsequent film choices. Pooja Dadwal returned to the limelight last year after reports surfaced that Salman’s Being Human was providing her financial help for fighting with tuberculosis.

Pooja Dadwal's interview with PTI 

Exactly before her interview with Press Trust India, Pooja Dadwal made a call informing about the change in the venue for the interview. Post her conversation with the long-gone actor, the interviewers came to know that she was asked to vacate her room at late hours. Pooja had to find a new roof. "Why don’t the hardships ever end?", the long-forgotten actor asks. Post Pooja’s recovery, the actor was back in the city after a year of treatment. In her interview with PTI, Pooja revealed that she wishes to make a comeback in the industry. The actor believes that all she needs is a role to prove the actor is still alive in her.

"I just need good work. I ask for nothing but a chance to be back. It will take time but that's okay. I now know what my life is worth of. The industry has taught me that you can leave on your own wish, but you come back on their wish," she says.

Pooja Dadwal had quit the industry post her appearance in Zee TV's Gharana. The actor had to quit due to the below-par work coming her way and her need to focus on her family and start a new chapter. This is what she said:

"I wanted a normal life but there were lots of family issues, personal things which came up. That started breaking me down and I kept questioning if I did the right thing by quitting. At one point, I thought I'd lose my mind. But I continued."

After she quit acting, Pooja briefly went to the US and found herself working at a gas station and eventually moved to Goa, where she worked as an assistant manager at a casino. One day while working, Pooja saw everything crashing down when she threw up blood one night. She was admitted to a hospital in Sewri, Mumbai, in March 2018 for TB, where she spent six months.

"I saw nine deaths in front of me there, which left me shaken. Then Being Human stepped in. This is my second inning and it happened only because of Salman Khan. I just want to meet and touch his feet. If he wouldn't have stepped in, no one would have known about my existence or even cared about my death."
