What makes you to choose Bol Bachchan
I don't think anybody can refuse a film like Bol Bachchan. It's an obvious choice,.When you get such set up, such people, Rohit, Ajay, Abhishek everybody put together than I don't think anyone can say no to such film. I have not attempted an and out comedy.. Bol Bachchan give me the opportunity to go into the complete comedy zone.
What do you think of Rohit Shetty and how familiar you are with his style
I have only watched Rohit on comedy circus. He hardly says anything.He is very calm on that show. He used to just enjoy himself and his personality seems completely different but after starting my shoot with him I come to know how different he is. On the set he can be quite strict but itís fun to be with him. Actually what make easier is the fact that he worked with the same team from very long time for many years.
They donít say anything to each other but everyone will be on the same pace. If someone is playing a prank on me than everyone else knows about it except me. For me itís a very different set up very alien.
The kind of films I did is rather serious. But coming to such a place is suddenly thrown into a mad house. It took me a week to adjust to them. First two days I thought I just put into a wrong place.
I am being misplaced and I need to go back. But as far as work is concern Rohit shetty is a director with a magic wand, he does smoothing to his film and it becomes fabulously entertaining. I am just lucky to work with him.
Favorite Rohit Shetty films
I loved Golmaal so much. I have watched it again and again. I missed Golmaal 2 but caught up with the latest one. I loved Kareena in that film because it was fabulously funky and out of the way role.Preparations for this role
Initially they were no instruction as such but I thought itís better to do something I thought of watching
Juhi Chawla films as I love her comedy but end of it I don't have to do anything as I had Abhishek Bachchan who is the maddening factor and I am the normal and the calming down factor.
First day on shoot
Absolutely alien atmosphere. In fact my first day of shoot I had really very long dialog to say and everyone was familiar with the set except me as I have joined them late. Abhishek and me had a dialogue where I was supposed to get extremely angry with him and need to walk off from the place for the shot.
The shot get okayed after 27 takes.. the reason after every shot Abhishek used to start laughing. I have no clue why he was laughing I kept him asking that is something wrong with me or I have done something wrong. Only 2 days ago he told me that he was strictly instructed by Rohit to make me nervous by laughing at my every shot and don't let me say any of my dialogs.So prachi was ragged on her first day in Rohit Shettyís camp Totally.....so much ragging..... (laughs)..
Throw some light on you character
I am playing Abhishek's love interest and Ajay's younger sister, who is a pehelwaan and there is a full phelewaan clan and I am the only girl among them.I am different from them educated, more modern girl and Ajay is stuck up in his own time. He doesn't know English but he loves converting it into English. My role is funky and little pampered but still very scared of Ajay.As per your character you are scared of Ajay devgan. Is it same for the real life? The first time I met Ajay is on the set of OUTIM where I, Emraan, Ajay and few actors had a scene together. Ajay is so much silent on the set.
His personality was so intimidating but as person he so calm and what real stars are made off you get to see so like to be around Ajay. He is very quiet and he loves whatever does, he is very professional about everything.I am not scared of him but there is certain sense of respect for him which makes you sober down for a person like Ajay.
What about Abhishek as a co star
Ajay and Abhishek are totally contrasting personality. Abhishek on the other hand is like house on fire. He is always bubbling; spreading his energy around and he just love to enjoy him no matter what the scene is serious, comedy, emotional anything.
Are you choosy
The kind of role I have being offered I wasn't interested in doing such roles.I know that if I do the film like that than my shelf life would be 2-3 years and I have being over by then, I know that I have to wait for my age act role to come to me.This is a good year for me because after BOl Bachchan, I have a film with John Abraham where I can change the perception completely. It is a vivacious role. This gives me opportunity to switch me. This kind of role I was waiting for.
How ambitious are you
Every actor has to be ambitious or else he can't survive in the industry. Every small little thing can bog you down. I am ambitious but not over ambitious. Hoping this year will be a great year.
Do you believe that the comedy is tough
Absolutely. its tough. You need to get your timing right.
You all time favorite comedy films
Original Golmaal. Golmaal 1, Andaaz apana apana are the best comedy ever.
Which director you would like to work
Farhan as a director. As I worked with him on Rock on but it was his debut film. He is one of my favorite director due to 'Dil Chahata Hai'. Rohit Shetty' again for sure and hoping to do a film with Ajay probably. Rohit Ajay together since I haven't being paired with him.
