After her 2013 releases I Me Aur Main and Policegiri failed to set the box office on fire, Prachi Desai has been keeping a low profile. Even her mentor Ekta who discovered her in the hit TV serial ‘Kasamh Se’ had not cast her in any of her movies after Once Upon A Time In Mumbai.
But now Prachi Desai will have a song ‘Awari’ picturised on her in Balaji’s forthcoming film Ek Villain, which stars Siddharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh.
While the number is a rock style bar track, it is not being touted as an item song. Director Mohit Suri wanted a tender, vulnerable face with strong acting abilities, and he thought Prachi fitted the bill.
