Actress Pooja Chopra adds, “I never saw myself as a Kingfisher calendar model, as I have been refusing bikini endorsement shoots. Not because I wasn’t confident, but I wasn’t sure how the end product will look. Although here, the final outcome, the way the team made me look was AMAZING and if Kingfisher gave me a chance to shoot it all over again, I would definitely say yes!”
