Prachi Desai, the blue eyed girl of Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Films TV soaps, made her silver screen debut with Abhishek Kapoor and Farhan Aktar’s Rock On and got noticed instantly.
Prachi is now acting in a film titled Once Upon A Time which is being produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Milan Luthria.
This film is based on the life and times of Haji Mastan, the first known underworld don of Mumbai. Prachi plays the wife of don in this film.
Amitabh Bachchan’s role in Deewar, written by Salim-Javed, had some shades of the character of Haji Mastan. Mani Ratnam’s Nayakan, starring Kamal Hasan, was loosely based on the life of another don Mudaliyar.
Once Upon A Time goes on floors after August.
