It is a dream debut for her, but, sadly, Pooja Hegde will not be around to spread the word on her maiden film. The actress, who makes her debut opposite Hrithik Roshan in Mohenjo Daro, has been diagnosed with dengue.

According to a report on Bollywood Hungama, Hegde has been unwell for the past few days. When her condition did not improve, Hegde went for medical tests and was diagnosed with dengue. As a result, the actress is likely to miss all the promotional activities before the release.

Director Ashutosh Gowariker, Hrithik Roshan and the crew of Mohenjo Daro held their first press conference a few weeks ago. Hegde spoke briefly at the event, saying that she found Mohenjo Daro boring in school.

The film is scheduled to hit theatres on 12 August 2016.
