Actress Prachi Desai, who was in television before making a career in Bollywood has praised the growth TV saying that its reach and effect on people is vast.
Prachi started her television career as lead protagonist in the successful TV drama Kasamh Se on Zee TV. She made her Bollywood debut in the 2008 film Rock On!!. Her other notable features include Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, Bol Bachchan and I, Me Aur Main.
“I think television’s growth is phenomenal reaching out to so many people. So yes, the reach is definitely way vaster and wider. I think it is unmatchable,” Prachi said. What she obviously meant was the TV’s effect on the society is wider than that of the cinema.
Prachi was last seen in the sports drama Azhar. The film, that also stars Emraan Haashmi, will air on Sony Max on August 14. The actress, who worked with Emraan in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, says working with him again was really nice.
“I worked with Emraan in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai. Thankfully our pair was very well received so coming together in Azhar was really nice. The familiarity was, of course, a lot and yes we do share a rapport. That always helps actors in terms of their work.”
Azhar, which released on May 13 on the big screen, also features actress Nargis Fakhri. – CINEWS
