Actor Prachi Desai is more than happy playing her age in her next film, I, Me Aur Main.
“It is such a vivacious role. I don’t think people have normally seen me like that. The film is a perfect opportunity for me to change people’s perceptions about me,” says Desai.
Directed by debutant Kapil Sharma, the film will see actor John Abraham romancing five girls, Desai being one of them.
“I play a girl who is very young. She just comes into John’s life and changes everything around him,” she says.
The young actor, who started her career as the lead in the TV show, Kasamh Se, feels that the industry had a set perception about her and that nobody wanted to try her for new roles. According to her, she was always offered roles older to her.
“The reason for being offered such roles was because that is the kind of role I had done on television. So, I guess, people wanted to stick to that. They just wanted to capitalise with what they had seen me as,” says the actor.
The 25-year-old made her big screen debut with Rock On! and later featured in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, Life Partner and the recently released Teri Meri Kahaani. Her next is filmmaker Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan, which also stars actors Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan.
