Prachi Desai will make a glamorous guest appearance in Balaji and Mohit Suri’s keenly awaited Ek Villain۪.
Desai will feature in the “Awari” track , which will be shot in Mumbai later this week, with a surprise actor whose identity is being kept under
The track has been composed and rendered by the Pakistani band, Soch, who make their Bollywood debut with Ek Villain۪. In the past , Suri has introduced the likes of Atif Aslam and Mustafa Zahid from Lahore, to the world of Bollywood.
During a recent visit to the Balaji office, Suri bumped into Desai, who expressed a keen desire to work with him.
Said a source, “Prachi has been a huge fan of Mohit’s hits and was overwhelmed when he instantly asked her to make an appearance in a track. Music has always been a major highlight of his films.”
“‘Awari” is not a quintessential item number, as Suri does not subscribe to that philosophy. He was not keen to go the typical item girl path and wanted a tender, vulnerable face with strong acting abilities, and Desai fit the bill.
The rock-style bar track laden with emotion, is, in fact, organic to a pivotal sequence in the film’s second half. Desai fell in love with the track on first hearing and the plan is to style her in a never-seen-before avatar.
Going by Jacqueline Fernandez and Shraddha Kapoor’s make-overs in his recent films, Suri sure has a good eye for women and Desai is next.
