"I feel this is my debut film. Neil (Nitin Mukesh) says that about me a lot as well and I hope people really like me in this avatar," the 24-year-old said at a special screening of the film.
Puja believes it is her first big commercial romantic film and so, it is very dear to her.
"I am shaking (shivering out of nervousness) right now because for me, it is my first full commercial big film, where I am this actress, running around jungles and singing songs. It's my first romantic film, so it's very dear to me," Puja said.
Directed by Susi Ganesh, "Shortcut Romeo" also stars actress Ameesha Patel. It hit theatres on Friday.
