Prachi Tehlan, who started her career with a small but crucial role in Star Plus show 'Diya aur Baati Hum' has become a popular name in the showbiz industry today. From working in the corporate world, representing India in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, to finding the hidden actor in her, Prachi has proved her potential everywhere. Indeed she is the Jack of all trades.
Before the release of her upcoming big-budget Malayalam movie opposite megastar Mammootty, Millennium Post caught up with the actress to have a quick candid chat. Here are few excerpts:
An actor you want to share screen with
Your success mantra
Be mentally strong and stay focused
One personality you want to exchange your life with
Jennifer Lopez. She is a pool of talent with a great personality
One advice you want to give to your fellow actresses
I would advise most of them to be less insecure of other girls on the set. Everyone is there for a reason. Comparisons, insecurity, and jealousy only make the process bitter.
One similarity in the corporate world and showbiz industry
Both are extremely competitive and one with a strong mind can only survive in the long run.
Your definition of happiness
Being in love with people and nature
Period drama, biopic – what would be your pick and why?
Biopic. It gives you an opportunity to step in the shoes of another person whose achievements are being converted into a biopic – which I believe is incredible in its own way
What's that one thing you have which others don't
Height (this is what I know) and positive aura (this is what people tell me)
What do you dislike about yourself
I am a very complicated and an easy going person at the same time. I am highly impatient towards reaching my goals in life, which keeps me driven to work hard.
