The actress, in a recent live session with an online portal, revealed that her injuries haven't completely healed. "There is a saying- never say never. Reality shows give me a lot of happiness. Of course, what happened in Nach Baliye 9 was sad, like I have lost almost 50% of my right hand's movement. It doesn't bend and that is a big loss for me. And no matter how much I try I don't think that movement I will be able to get back. It all depends on my will power and physiotherapy. During the lockdown, I am trying to heal my injury. But I still want to do more of reality shows because I love them," revealed Pooja to SpotboyE.
For those who do not know what happened, Pooja was standing on husband Sandeep's shoulders and was supposed to fall backwards with their choreographer catching her. However, she lost balance and ended up falling forward, from a height of 10 feet to the ground. Sandeep had then revealed, "She landed on her hands. The impact was such that she hurt both her hands - the joint of her right wrist is fractured, while the left elbow bone is chipped. Pooja has also sprained a ligament in her left leg. She is in a cast and the doctors are waiting for the swelling to subside before they perform the surgery."
