One week prior to the Miss World final in December 2009, Pooja sprained her left ankle while running down a flight of stairs. The doctors advised her complete bed-rest for 3 weeks, virtually ending her chances of winning the title.

While shooting for COMMANDO, which is a high-octane action thriller, Pooja had to perform her share of action scenes.

Talking about performing the stunt scenes in the film, Pooja says, 'I have a dive in the film, which was about 40 feet. It wasn't very easy knowing that you have to jump into a river from 40 feet. Yet, it gave me a good adrenaline rush. So, I enjoyed it.'

However, she ended up getting injured while shooting for the film as well. Pooja adds, 'All Vidyut and I have done through most of the film is running through uneven surfaces. I must have fallen over 30 times, injured my left ankle again a couple of times. I had the ankle band on for a few days, but that did not deter me. I took it up as a challenge. Since this ankle did not let me perform during Miss World, I didn't want to give up so easily this time. I used to get up again, dust my clothes and get on with it.'

Directed by Dilip Ghosh, COMMANDO is all set to release on April 12, 2013.
