Actress Prachi Desai does not mindbeing part of masala entertainers as leading ladies just have to do a bit of song and dance while heroes do all the work.
Black's in! Prachi Desai started her career as a television actress with Kasamh Se before making her debut in Bollywood with Rock On!!.
"It is quite a relief to do such films. It is all hassle-free. You just go there, relax, sit, enjoy, say a few
lines, do dance numbers and look good. It is a fabulous thing to do," Prachi told PTI.
"I am an actor so I am not satisfied doing only one kind of films, so I try to balance it out whether the film or the role is big or small I am okay with it. If the role would not be important, I will not do it," she said.
Top heroines including Sonakshi, Kareena and Asin have been doing such entertainers like Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore, Son of Sardaar, Bodyguard, Ready and Khiladi 786, all of which turned to be huge hits.
The 24-year-old had a successful stint on television with her debut soap Kasamh Se being a big hit. Later, a dance reality show catapulted her to stardom which landed her a few offers in Bollywood. In Rock On, she essayed the role of Farhan Akhtar's wife. In Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, she played muse to Emraan Hashmi.
In Bol Bachchan, Prachi played a college girl, and was a sister of Ajay Devgn. Her latest movie I me Aur Main saw her playing the role of a young girl next-door.
"As an actor you feel constant pressure as you are watched continuously... you have to be presentable and good in every area," Prachi said.
"Somewhere I feel I am not myself any more I am just so concisions about everything. I have to do things in a certain way. There are so many restrictions," she said.
