Prachi Desai to romance Sanjay Dutt
The 23-year-old actress is all set to star in an upcoming film with Sanjay Dutt, 30 years her senior.
Like Sonakshi Sinha, Prachi Desai also seems to be opting to act with older heroes. After Abhishek Bachchan in Bol Bachchan, it is now Sanjay Dutt for Prachi. The actress has given her nod to co-star with Dutt in the Hindi remake of the Tamil flick Saamy. She begins shooting later this month in Hyderabad.
B-Town is known for older heroes romancing young heroines. Here is one more. Prachi is 23 while Dutt is 53. After Bol Bachchan’s success, Prachi is apparently keen to do projects with established stars in lavish productions.
So their three decades age difference does not matter. In her previous films, she has featured with Farhan Akhtar (Rock On), Tusshar Kapoor (Life Partner) and Emraan Hashmi (Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai) besides Abhishek, who are all in their 30s. Interestingly even in her small screen debut Kasamh Se, the soap’s track had her paired with an older man essayed by Ram Kapoor.
When asked about the pairing, the film’s producer T P Aggarwal says, “Prachi might come across as someone extremely young to be paired with Sanjay Dutt. But we wanted a girl who did not have the oomph factor in her. We wanted someone who could carry off the girl-next-door image well and who could be better than Prachi? She fitted the character just right.”
The film is directed by K S Ravikumar and marks the Tamil director’s Bollywood debut. Ravikumar had earlier directed the Kamal Haasan starrer Dasavathaaram. As reported ‘Cool cop’. Sanjay essays the character of a roughneck cop in the film. The original Saamy which released in 2003 starred Vikram and Trisha.
