Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’s young Poo, Malvika Raaj, is all set to debut as an adult. Here’s how she looks now
Malvika Raaj, who was seen as young Poo in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, is all set to feature in ZEE5’s upcoming film Squad. This is her first Hindi film after the 2001 release. Earlier, she has featured in a couple of singles and a Telugu film Jayadev.
In an interview she did a couple of years ago, the actor revealed why she disappeared from the silver screen after the release of the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer. She played the role of young Kareena Kapoor in the film. “After ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, since I was a very young and a naughty child…. My dad did not want me to pursue acting anymore as it would have distracted me from studies. Even as a child actor, I got many proposals to work, but my dad did not allow me,” she told IANS.
When asked if her father is okay with her choosing the field of acting, she replied, “He is okay with it, he just wanted me to have my degree and then pursue my acting work.”
The actor-model shared the first glimpse Squad on Instagram. The poster shows Malvika in a commando avatar while the film is headlined by Danny Denzongpa’s son Rinzing Denzongpa. Sharing the poster on Instagram, Malvika wrote, “Is Baar Ladayi desh ke liye nahi, Desh ki beti ke liye hai. (This time, the fight is not for the country but for its daughter.” She also informed that the trailer of the film will drop on Monday.
