Mumbai | Actress Pooja Bedi has said that the erotic ad for condom Kamasutra shaped her career in every possible way. She was speaking at the silver jubilee celebrations of India’s first and foremost condom brand – KamaSutra – here last evening.

“It’s been a phenomenal journey over 25 years. Kamasutra shaped my career in every possible way. It enhanced the whole sexism quotient that I had come with. It made me famous and infamous,” Pooja added.

Pooja, the daughter of Protima Bedi, feels she was fortunate to have got the opportunity to be part of “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander”.

“Today people remember me for ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander’.

The film is the most memorable thing for me in my life. I am glad the opportunity came my way,” Pooja said.

“Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar” was a 1992 Indian sportsdrama film directed by Mansoor Khan. The film had Aamir Khan, Ayesha Jhulka, Mamik Singh, Deepak Tijori & Kulbhushan Kharbanda in the lead roles.

The 46-year-old actress, who became a household name after “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander”, has done different kind of shows on television from dance shows to stunt reality shows besides writing columns in various newspapers.

Ask her if acting has taken a backseat, Pooja said, “I have morphed into multiple avatars. I did film acting with NTR Junior, etc. I have a lot of exciting things to do in life like ‘Happy Soul’ workshop we teach people how to be happy, how to reprogram, how to create happiness,” she said.

“It’s going into a digital space. The workshop will go to academy and universities. The idea is to grow. There is a shelf life for every avatar and the nature of roles will change and one just has to keep doing different things,” she said.
