Ever since Prachi Desai made her big switch from the small screen to the big one, the actress managed to do a wide variety of roles. However,  it was not until her recent release Bol Bachchan that she got to put on her dancing shoes.

And the actor reveals that she is not only thrilled to finally get to do such dance numbers, but is now looking forward to doing many more such fun tracks. “There wasn’t much scope for such dance numbers in my previous films like Rock On! or Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, so dancing was not something that I had seriously thought about, until Bol Bachchan,” says Prachi, who was seen showing some of the latka-jhatkas with co-actor Abhishek Bachchan in the film. “But I am really excited with the response and hope to do more such dances now,” she adds.

The actress shares that dancing apart, she is also excited with the kind of roles coming her way. “I am glad that I have been able to avoid being slotted in any image as far as my onscreen characters are concerned,” she says.

But ask her about the sweet girl-next-door image that people associate her with, that actually goes back to her TV days and Prachi is quick to reply. “I won’t deny that I’m a sweet person,” she laughs. “But people only know me based on what they see on screen. Apart from the goody image, I also have a naughty side. In fact, I’m quite a wild child at heart!” And what about the flirty side? “That only occasionally,” she smiles.

Ask the actor about her favourite co-stars and she says that she shares a great rapport with all of them. “Well, just like my films, all my co-stars have been really different from each other, so it’s been super fun working with all of them for different reasons. Like John (actor John Abraham in I, Me Aur Main), is a complete gentleman, while Abhishek kept us in splits, all through the shooting. So, it’s really tough to choose one over another, I’ve enjoyed working with both immesely,” adds Prachi.
