Perhaps I was destined to play the character of Susheel: Prachi
Known to bring forth refreshing plots and striking stories, Star Plus is set to air a new show with Prachi Tehlan in the lead. Ikyawann, which will be telecasted during prime time, traces the story of a girl raised by four fathers. While promoting her upcoming show, Prachi mentioned that she feels very connected to her character and also that she was destined to play this role.
‘My character Susheel is very similar to who I am in my real life. Just like Susheel, I preferably wear loose fitting clothes and dress up like boys. Both of us are aggressive personalities with a kind heart. Also, Susheel is confident, big time foodie and loves her father more than anybody else. That’s so like me,” says Prachi.
Prachi was a national level basketball player before she stepped in the television industry. Interestingly, as the story progresses, viewers can see Susheel turning into a sports person as well. Speaking further, Prachi mentions about the concept her character believes in. “Susheel always says that ‘Jo wrong hai wo wrong hai…aur Susheel kabhi wrong nhi hone deti,’ to which I can associate myself.”
The actress, who started her television career from the show Diya aur Baati hum, is blessed with a great height. The already released promos evidently speak of how her height will play a vital role in defining the character.
Speaking about coming on board, Prachi in an interview reveals that she gave the audition for the show a year ago. “It took almost one year for the makers of the show to finalize me. Perhaps I was destined to play this character. Despite looking for other suitable matches, the search ended up on me and I am really grateful for that,” says Prachi.
One can watch this interesting journey of Susheel from November 13 on Star Plus.
