The celebrity who has risen from small screen to silver screen...
is always on the lookout to bring its readers new and innovative
articles so here we are presenting to you the brand new series of
Bollywood's Rising Star!
From time to
time, we will showcase a new celebrity who has risen from being a TV
personality of our small screen to a successful Bollywood actor of our
silver screen. Part 1 features the one and only, Prachi Desai!
of Birth: September 12th, 1988.
Unlike many of her peers, Prachi has claimed that
she had always aspired to become an actress; possibly from having
watched her father and uncle participating in Gujrati plays who have
since become an inspiration for her.
It was the simple act of
sending some pictures from a short modeling workshop that saw Balaji
Telefilms catapult her to stardom in their wildly successful show, Kasamh Se.
Starring opposite the very talented Ram Kapoor, Prachi conquered many hearts as Bani
Walia, as well as going on to do a two-day cameo for Kasauti Zindagi
She went on to find further success in Jhalak
Dikhlaja 2 where she scooped first prize following a wild card
entry. The talented actress later laced up her dancing shoes to star in
Dard-e-Disco, a tribute show for JDJ2 where she was re-united
with other former contestants.
career received a big boost when she finally got the golden chance of
starring in Rock On opposite multi-talented Farhan Akhtar, in
2008. Following its success at the Box office, she was signed on to
Govinda's 2009 flick Life Partner (opposite Tusshar Kapoor) and, more
recently 2010's blockbuster release, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai
where she romanced Emraan Hashmi.
is currently awaiting the release of her fourth movie, Main..Joker,
starring TV hunk Rajeev Khandelwal (of Kahiin To Hoga fame).

rather young age.
2006 in The Sixth Indian Telly Awards, Prachi won the 'Couple of the Year' award
with co star Ram Kapoor for their on-screen chemistry in Kasamh Se,
as well as the 'Fresh New Face Of the Year' award in Female category.
the 15th Kalakar Awards, Prachi received the 'Best Actress' award on
January 14th at Science City Auditorium.

2008, for the Global Indian TV Hounours, and Sansui Television Awards
, Prachi was bestowed with the 'Best Actress' award yet one more
most recent award was from Sabse Favourite Kaun, ' where she won the
'Best Newcomer' award.
her multiple talents and rising fame and career, we believe Prachi
could go a long way. For now, she is the endorser, spokesperson, brand
ambassador and the face of skin care label Neutrogena.
wish her a long list of many more endorsement brands and a merry career!
