Pooja joins the league of stars who think that a personal blog has become a necessity rather then a fad. She has, in fact, gone on to change the previous name of her blog 'poojablogs' to 'poojabediblogs'. Talking about the same and the name change she says, "I have not created a blog to follow the trend, but to connect with my fans. I have actually created a Facebook account, but then I get more than a hundred friend requests everyday. So I thought it would be easier to interact with people who want to know me better through a personal blog. And I changed the name of my blog for better branding. It also becomes easier for people to find my blog when they look for it online."
There is certainly a lot about Pooja that people don't really know. For instance, how many of us know that she along with other PETA activists rescued a whale sometime back? "I actually didn't know that it was a whale. When I first saw the mammal, I thought it was a shark and was scared. But then the PETA activists said that it was a dolphin and I jumped into the sea water to its rescue with no second thoughts. But to my horror it was not a dolphin... it was a whale," she tells us. Pooja might be an animal lover, but she is certainly not fond of reptiles. Well, probably not all, but at least not snakes. "I hate them. I never liked snakes, not even when I was a kid. Once PETA activists invited me for some snake event and I turned them down," she says.
But Pooja must have undoubtedly overcome her fear of snakes by now thanks to Akshay Kumar's Khatron Ke Khiladi where she had to perform a task related to 'snakes'. "Oh yes, how can I forget that! I had to lie down and there would be hundreds of snakes all over me. I somehow completed the task. I feel great that I have overcome my fear of snakes, but that doesn't mean that I like them," clears Pooja. There is surely a lot more to her than just her catfight with Celina Jaitley. And that's where her blog would come to the rescue, hopefully.
