Apprentice's Kurran Pooni sets sights on Hollywood movie career

Share article:

Kurran Pooni is planning to try to become a big Hollywood movie star after being fired on "The Apprentice".

The 22-year-old law graduated was axed by Lord Alan Sugar on the BBC business show last week, but he is now hoping to make it big across the pond, and he has set his sights on becoming a James Bond villain.

He said: "I've had the conversation with my father about LA.

"I've been trying to get representation. The ideal role would be the next Bond villain."

Kurran is also keen to follow in the footsteps of "Lion" and "Slumdog Millionaire" star Dev Patel by taking on similar roles.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Dev Patel, watch out. I'll be taking his work."

While many "Apprentice" candidates believe they have been hard done by upon being axed from the show, Kurran admitted Lord Sugar was in the right to ditch him from the programme.

He recently told BANG Showbiz: "It would have been nice to stay on screen for another couple of weeks but I think it was my time to go.

"Oh absolutely it was fair, you know it was my third time in that boardroom and it was Camilla and Khadija's first so if we're going off past performance I think Lord Sugar was justified in firing me."

However, Kurran did blame his sub-team for losing the task.

He said: "I think I lost because my sub-team decided to go on their own and completely disregard all of my advice and all of my ideas.

"I think all I could have done to better my situation was keep Jackie and Camilla closer to me where I could kind of monitor what they were doing. Maybe put someone like Daniel on the other team where I know he can kind of get on with it.

"Camilla sold herself to me as the branding queen and she's got her own business which is all based around branding so she said, "No I can get on board with this brand I've been to Ibiza, I've done this I've done that I've got it," and she really filled me with a false sense of security.

"So I thought when she came back with my brand it was gonna be hot, unfortunately, it was not."
