Gutsy sportswoman Prachi Tehlan gains strong foothold in acting


Prachi Tehlan, who has been written about as “The Queen of the Court” and “Lass of the Rings”, is undoubtedly one the nation’s most popular and attractive sports personalities.

Starting her acting career playing Arzoo in the famous television show Diya Aur Baati Hum on Star Plus last year, the sportswoman-turned-actress made her film debut with Manduip Singh’s Punjabi film Arjan, along with Roshan Prince.

Prachi’s performance was critically acclaimed and there has been a lot of excitement for her fans to see her on the silver screen in her next movie Bailraas opposite Binnu Dhillon, the story for which has been penned by Jas Grewal. Moreover, the girl has also bagged a lead role on a new Star Plus show called Ïkyawann.

When asked about her strengths in the business of entertainment, Prachi admits, “Acting happened to me by destiny. I hadn’t aspired to become an actor. It was an opportunity given to me, which I grabbed to try something new in life.” She’s sounds positive about the entertainment industry and terms it “adventurous.”

“I met director Manduip Sir at Starbucks for a narration and signed the film within three days. I asked him, what he saw in me while casting me, and he said that ‘I saw my film’s character Nimmy sitting in front of me’. I signed the film even before the lead actor was finalized. I didn’t know the language but Manduip Sir told me that my eyes and smile communicate enough and he was sure that I’d do justice to my role in the film. Frankly, that was the most wonderful compliment I’ve ever received.”

She will be soon learning martial arts for her debut film in South, which is going on floor soon. Plus, a rumour goes that Prachi has been approached by Priyanka Chopra’s production house Purple Pebbles for a new project. No official confirmation here, but one thing is sure… that we would love to see more of this charming star.
