Prachi Desai

Prachi Desai turns 25 today! Prachi Desai was born on 12 September, 1988 in Gujarat. The pretty lass was only 17 years old when she played the lead in Ekta Kapoor’s popular Hindi serial ‘Kasamh Se’. In 2008, Prachi Desai made her Bollywood debut as Farhan Akhtar’s wife in the hit movie ‘Rock On!!’. Her performance in ‘Rock On!!’ won her several awards, including a Filmfare Award for Best Debut. A sequel to the movie is said to go on floors soon with Prachi Desai.

She won critical acclaim once again for the 2010 gangster movie ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’. She was paired opposite Emraan Hashmi. In 2012, she bagged a role in ‘Bol Bachchan’ costarring Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Asin. It turned out to be a commercial success and raked big bucks at the box office. Prachi then went on to star beside John Abraham and Chitrangada Singh for ‘I, Me Aur Main’. She portrayed the role of a hairdresser in the movie and even learned to play the piano for her part!

Her most recent appearance was ‘Policegiri’ that starred Sanjay Dutt.  Prachi Desai will be seen playing the role of a princess in the third instalment of Vikram Bhatt’s horror franchise ‘1920’. Her dream project is to surprise her audience by playing a negative character or an unconventional role to avoid being typecast as the girl-next-door.

She is the brand ambassador for Goa Tourism Board. Neutrogena roped in Prachi Desai for their advertisements in India. She stole hearts with her dancing movies and won ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 2’ in 2007.

Here’s wishing Prachi Desai a very happy birthday!
