Says Prachi Desai, “After Jhalakâ€¦, I decided to do one more reality show because it was like taking another step forward. Though I am not allowed to reveal the concept, I can tell you that it will be very different from the usual shows. At the same time, the concept of the show is such that the common man will easily be able to relate to it.”After winning Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2, Prachi Desai is now gearing up for another dance-based reality show. However, this particular show promises to be different from the usual crop.
So, how does Prachi manage to take time out from the shooting schedules of her debut film Rock On? Prachi says, “The rehearsals for the show are yet to start. I am looking forward to it as I enjoyed my stint during the rehearsals in Jhalak… As far as managing both my film and the show goes, I have spoken to both Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani (producers of Rock On) and they have encouraged me to go ahead.”
She adds, “Moreover, the dates of the show and the film are not clashing with each other. Though the show will go on for 12 to 13 weeks, it depends on how long I will last on it.”
When quizzed about the controversies surrounding her Jhalakâ€¦ victory, Prachi says that she is completely prepared for all the backstage politics that are part of a reality show.
She says, “I already know most of the people out here, thanks to my earlier association with them. As for the people I don’t know, I don’t think I should be bothered with what they say or do.”
When contacted, Arun Sheeshkumar, director of the new show, says, “I have directed both the seasons of Jhalak and that’s why I can assure that this show is completely different from Jhalak, Nach Baliye or even Boogie Woogie. All I can say is that there is a twist to it that is worth waiting for. The only similarity it has with the other shows is the celeb factor.”
The show is going on the floors on March 10 and is produced by Cineyug and Eternal Dreams India Pvt. Ltd.
