Prachi Desai will be playing the lead in Balaji Telefilmsâ€™ next movie Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. The film is said to be based on Haji Mustanâ€™s life. Prachi, who has recently signed up for the movie, tells us more.SHE says, â€œIt took me a lot of time to agree to this movie. There were some uncertainties; they come with every movie and thatâ€™s why I would not like to talk about it much- at least till it has all been announced officially. Shooting has not started as yet but it is always lovely to work with Balaji.â€Though the actress cannot divulge many details, she does manage to let a few things slip. She says, â€œMilan Luthra is directing the film. The character that I am playing is really fresh. She is a lead character but as we all know, guys play most prominent roles in films.â€
Prachi has also finished shooting for her movie Life Partner. She says, â€œWe shot for the last schedule in December last year. Right now, I am dubbing for the film. The tentative date of release was May 1 but since there were issues with the distributors, the producer and the multiplexes, the release will be delayed.â€
And Life Partner was the reason Prachi was reluctant to sign for Once Uponâ€¦ initially. She says, â€œI was waiting for my dates to be confirmed. If Life Partner were to release on its original release date of May 1, it would have clashed with another movieâ€™s schedule. I would not be able to promote the film so I was worried about that. Now it seems that Life Partner will not release soon. As for Once Uponâ€¦, the schedule and everything has been decided so I said yes to them.â€
After Rock On!!, Prachi shot for Life Partner with Tusshar Kapoor, Genelia, Akshay Khanna, Govinda, Fardeen Khan and others. The movie is directed by Rumi Jaffrey. Prachi was also seen in Kasamh Seâ€™s last episode and in the opening episode Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 3.
