Show stopper

Prachi Desai, best known for her role as Bani in Kasamh Se, is Ekta Kapoor’s blue-eyed girl. And she makes sure that she has her say whenever she is shooting for Ekta’s shows. Recently, while shooting for Balaji Telefilms show Koi Jaane Kya Hoga (the second season of Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat), she was responsible for stalling the shoot just because she didn’t like the outfit she was given by Balaji designer Nim Sood.

Prachi usually chooses her own clothes, which she wears in the show. But she refused to wear a particular white outfit, which was given to her by the creative team and the shooting got stalled for a couple of hours. Prachi look in the show is that of a young college girl who usually wears jeans, skirts and kurtis.

Says a source, “The dress which was given to Prachi wasn’t impressive so the shooting stopped for a couple of hours. She does not like her creative team deciding what clothes she should wear in the show. She always prefers to choose her own clothes. She is extremely particular about her looks and clothes in the show and likes to discuss it only with Masi (Nim Sood) and dislikes the interference from the creative team.”

Prachi says, “I wish I had done something like that. But nothing like that happened. Masi sends all the clothes and then I choose from the lot according to the scenes. We have discussions when the clothes are sent to me.”

The Associate Creative Head of the show, Nisha Boridkar says, “Yes. Prachi chooses her own clothes for the show from what Masi sends for her.”

Nivedita Basu, Balaji’s creative director, says, “I have no clue about this.”
