I am the victim of my image: Prachi Desai

Mumbai: Actress Prachi Desai, who will be again seen in a girl next door image in her next film “Azhar”, agrees that she has been victim of her own image.

The actress, who previously played the sweet girl image role in films like “Rock On!!”, “Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai”, will once again be seen in somewhat similar character in Emran Hashmi starrer film.

The actress agrees that she is the victim of her own image but says that she has “no contribution to it.”

“It’s not like I want to be like this but it’s the kind of roles I keep getting over and over again. I blame it on lack of choices. I think filmmakers need to offer me more interesting stuff and I feel that they need to see the real person in me,” she told IANS.

“Yes, I do such roles fairly well but this is not that all I can do.I can do much more. The industry needs to open up a little (towards me),” she added.

Prachi will be seen playing Mohammad Azharuddin ‘s first wife Naureen in the biopic made on the cricketer.

The actress says that she has “grown up watching Azharuddin but with Naureen there were nothings much that we know so I was completely relying on peoples version of Naureen but that was not enough.”

“It wasn’t easy fro me but I am glad I took it as a challenge.”

Directed by Tony D’Souza, “Azhar” is jointly produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and MSM Motion Picture. The film also stars Nargis Fakhri, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles and is slated for a worldwide release on May 13, 2016.
