Prachi Desai has been flying under the radar since I Me Aur Main (2013) and Policegiri (2013) , save for an item number in Ek Villain (2014), but now the actress has started work on two more films – Farhan Akhtar’s sequel of her debut film, Rock On (2008) and Ekta Kapoor’s production, Azhar.

I play a woman who people are aware of but they don’t really know who she is. They will get to know her in this film through me. This role is challenging because it is the only way people will get to see her,” Prachi revealed at the launch of Forevermark Diamond’s new jewellery collection.

About Rock On 2, Prachi said, “This film will be a challenge too, but for all of us because we have to make it better than our earlier film.”

The actress, who turned 27 on September 3, is expecting things to bet better in the future. “This gap (between releases) wasn’t intentional,” she sighed. “There were some amazing things I was looking forward to doing. Some independent films and films like Badtameez Dil, with Emraan Hashmi,  didn’t take off and I lost precious time. I do very selective films and that is why I do few films.”
