After being discovered by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms on the small screen, Prachi Desai made a successful transition to Bollywood and has, over the years, worked for Balaji Motion Pictures in films such as ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ (2010), ‘Ek Villain’ (2014) and ‘Azhar’ (2016). However, Desai believes that she is not Balaji’s “blue-eyed girl”.
The actress is quoted by Deccan Chronicle, saying, “‘Rock On’ (2008) was my debut film and that had nothing to do with Balaji. ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ was a film that gave me commercial success and that was my first Balaji film. After six long years, I did ‘Azhar’ which happens to be Balaji. So I don’t know where this is coming from. I am not like an Alia (Bhatt) for Dharma or Parineeti (Chopra) for YRF. I have never been like that for Balaji. I am not their blue-eyed girl. Having said that, if they have something good for me, they will surely approach me.”
Desai’s most recent project is ‘Rock On 2’ – a sequel to her debut film, also starring Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Shraddha Kapoor.
