Mumbai: After folding onto the filmy
department, Prachi Desai is very few of those who have able to left their mark on the movie-goers. Reason are still unclear as to why the Indian audience retracts from viewing a film that has a small screen star but loves the same star, for their small screen appearances.
Prachi in a candid interview to a media house revealed, "I am hoping to do a film with Ajay (Devgn) because I haven't been paired with him." But the actress, who hopes to do 25 films in future, says it is not so easy for such people to get the first break in Bollywood.
"I feel that the industry can be unfair sometimes. When you are an outsider, people don't take you seriously. I personally think you need an extreme push for people to promote you and bring you to a certain level," the 23-year-old said.
The young actress, who started her career as the lead in TV show Kasamh Se
, made her Bollywood debut opposite Farhan Akhtar in Rock On!. She was then seen in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai
, in which she was paired with Emraan Hashmi, and also was in the cast of recently released Teri Meri Kahaani
Her next is Rohit Shetty's Bol Bachchan
. Coming out on Friday, the comedy will see her playing Ajay Devgn's sister who is an educated and modern girl. The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Asin Thottumkal in major roles.
Prachi Desai says it is important for an actor to be ambitious. "Every actor has to be ambitious; otherwise you can't survive in the industry. Every small little thing can completely bog you down. I am ambitious, but I am not over-ambitious. I know things that I can do and things that I can't. I am hoping for this year to be a great year," she said.
As far as future projects are concerned, Prachi has teamed up with John Abraham in debutant director Kapil Sharma's I Me Aur Main
When asked where she sees herself five years from now, she said: "Five years down the line, I hope that I do at least 25 films. I would love to work with Farhan as a director. He is also one of my favorite directors because of Dil Chahta Hai
. I want to work with Rohit Shetty again."
