I, ME AUR MAIN is seeing some unconventional turns for itself. While one is anyways gearing up to see how John Abraham has approached his part of a 'man child' in this Kapil Sharma directed film, there is more. Prachi Desai, who has been pretty much playing to her image so far, case in point being films like ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI and BOL BACHCHAN, has apparently shed her inhibitions and would be seen in an altogether different 'avatar'.
Says Kapil, 'As a matter of fact, Prachi's character was a little tough to cast. Yes, the film is a love triangle with Chitrangda in there as well but then essentially it is still about John's character. While Chitrangda has fitted in well into the mould of a confident young woman, Prachi is someone who represents innocence while also bringing in cutesy sexiness to the fore. Add to that the fact that she comes with good enough acting chops and the overall package ended up working for the film.'
Terming her inclusion in the film as sort of 'counter casting', Kapil admits that to begin with, he did have trouble changing the kind of image she has gained over years on television and subsequently in films as well.
'Yes, her image has been that,' smiles Kapil, 'While she was still modern in ROCK ON!! , OUATIM put her back into the traditional zone. In I, ME AUR MAIN we wanted to bring her on as a regular Indian city based working woman. She was also game to be on board for a set up like this. She said that finally she was getting a chance to play her age as well otherwise all this while she was playing someone older to her. She really jumped head on into the film and has really done justice to the opportunity.'
We would know as well once the film releases all over this Friday.
