Talking to a publication she revealed that she rejected offers due to casting couch, she said, “I think very direct propositions were made to get cast in a certain film, a big film, but I have outright said no. Even after that director has called me, after saying no, I have still said that I am not interested in your film.”
Earlier the actress said that she had to reject multiple projects. Prachi also did agree that there was pressure to pay the bills, but she did not want to do repetitive roles.
“Had I let that pressure get to me, I would have agreed to all the offers that came to me. I got many roles with great directors and stories but I felt the role wouldn’t benefit me in any way. The roles didn’t add anything to my career so I’d to let go of those films. It comes from the space of being strong-minded and knowing what I want. Being in the limelight wasn’t my goal as anyway I shy away from it,” she earlier said.
