Actress Prachi Desai, who is currently seen in the webseries ‘Dhootha’, feels that earlier she was considered to be ‘too pretty‘ for meaty parts in projects.
In an interview with India Today, Prachi stated that she was often considered ‘too pretty, and many a time when she was given a shot for something interesting, they probably thought she was too pretty to pull it off.
According to her, an actor can want to and wish to do a lot of things, but at the end of the day, it is the director’s and writer’s imagination that pulls you out of the boxes that have been created.
The actress expressed that now she feels that at least most of them can see that they can do a lot more with her as an actor.
Prachi explained that having a certain screen presence—having that innocence and sweetness—probably stops people from making casting choices that can be considered unconventional.
The actress added that now filmmakers are very open to doing something unconventional, so even if you don’t look anything like the character in the box looks, they know that you can pull it off with your individuality. However, the good news is that things are changing for the better.
For the universe, ‘Dootha’ is an Indian Telugu-language horror mystery thriller streaming television series created and directed by Vikram Kumar. It also stars Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Gnaneswari Kandregula, Anish Kuruvilla, and Tharun Bhascke in pivotal roles.
