Pooja Batra made her debut in the 1997 Bollywood film Virasat, starring Anil Kapoor and Tabu. She captivated spectators and received favorable reviews for her performance in her very first movie because to her outstanding beauty and charisma.
Before pursuing a career in movies, Pooja Batra had a successful modeling career. The 90s' biggest actors, including Govinda, Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor, and Suniel Shetty, were among her coworkers. Haseena Maan Jayegi, Bhai, Talaash, and Nayak are a few of her movies. Pooja had a passably good film career and was expected to go much farther when she abruptly chose to leave the business after getting married. After appearing in almost 30 films, Pooja wed Dr. Sonu Ahluwalia in 2002.
At the time, Pooja followed the trend of actresses who did not work in films after getting married. She disappointed her followers by moving to the USA and leaving the business. However, the couple decided to get a divorce in 2011 after nine years of marriage. Pooja was reportedly receiving offers from Hollywood at the time, but her husband opposed her returning to the entertainment industry.
The actress returned to India after divorcing her first spouse and began her second career in Bollywood. She was unable to repeat her prior success, and she was given only little parts that did not further her career.
Due to the media's tremendous interest in the news of this actress' second marriage, she made headlines once again in 2019. Nawab Shah, an actor well known for his work in Don 2, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, and Escape from Taliban, wed Pooja. For a long period, the pair disguised their connection. Pooja is now happily married and avoids the movie industry while her husband, Nawab Shah, often appears in hostile parts in Hindi and Telugu movies. She continues to be quite active on social media and often posts pictures and videos of her spouse online.
