In July 2002, about a month after returning from filming in Spain, Pooja was invited to a EastEnders workshop. During the next six months she was called over few times and eventually in November she got the phone call that they wanted her to play the role of the sister in the new family being introduced.
On the 9th April 2003 she walked for the first time on to the Albert Square Set for filming.
She appeared for the first time on our screen in EastEnders on 3rd June 2003.
