A famous and Successful Television actor, Prachi Desai made her Bollywood debut in 2008. Rock On was her debut film. After her debut film, she was seen in films like Once upon a time in Mumbai, Bol Bachchan, and Azhar. We have also seen her performing in the movie Ek villain, a song named “Awari”, where she was unrecognizable.
We have rarely seen her post-2016, it is now in 2021 that we watch her acting in different OTT projects and theatrical releases. Recently she talked about being disrespected by film directors. She said that she was asked to look hot which was inappropriate behavior by prominent directors. Recently we have watched her in a series named ‘Silence’ with Manoj Bajpai.
She refused the thankless roles which created a negative image of hers in the film industry.
She also said no to Sexist films. She expressed, “I have never wanted to work in sexist films. And in this industry, I have fought with this notion for a long time. All that people wanted me to be was ‘hot’, The feedback I got from several male producers and directors was that I had to work on being hot. So, I picked less work and I chose to stay away. I said no to some big, but very sexist films.”
She told how many directors asked her to sign a film without a script or narration. She further said, “I could not possibly give the nod to a film like that. I dealt with this for two years before deciding to not put up with it anymore. The notion that others developed was that I was not interested. Word spread, and some people merely on hearsay didn’t approach me.”
