Item numbers are no different from normal songs and are important for a Bollywood career, believes actor Prachi Desai.
“Item numbers are extremely beneficial in an actress’ career. If you get a song which really cracks it for you, it is fantastic, as people, more than watching your film, watch you on TV in that song,” said Prachi, and added, “These days I don’t see much difference between a normal song and an item number, as long as it is an entertaining song.”
In her forthcoming film, I Me Aur Main, Prachi sports a glamourous look, and has danced to a peppy song — a new age version of Sridevi’s chartbuster Na jaane kahaan se aayi hai.
Things, really seem to be looking up for her, and the 24-year-old says she has nothing to complain about.
“Whatever I have done before is very special to me. Bol Bachchan came to me at the right time. Every actor needs that kind of commercial film to boost one’s popularity,” she said.
She has done well in a short span of time and, Prachi attributes her success to luck. “In this industry, everything works on luck. And it is a lot tougher for outsiders like me.”
