The Indian television industry is full of young and talented actresses but there are some who simply stand out. Despite being away from television screens for long periods of time, they manage to keep their charm alive. Praachi Thakker, wife of popular actor Pankit Thakker is one of the few who do not appear in dramas very often but whenever she does, she makes sure she leaves her mark with her outstanding performance.
An actor who treats her work as a means of expression rather than a means of fame and fortune, Praachi has made her mark with effortless performances in shows like Havan, Kasautii Zindagi Kay, Kaagaz Ki Kashti and Tamanna.
When asked about her sabbatical from television Praachi said,
“I am not seen in dramas often as I never seek recognition. If I were hungry for fame, I would have been doing television shows left, right and center. I am into very selected work for television because I am busy with other things which I find more appealing.”
During her sabbatical, she has been a part of a number of television commercials including the recent Colgate ad which received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. The commercial has also gotten her noticed by a major channel who is keen on signing her for their next big project.
“Yes I have got an exceptional response on my new Colgate ad and I have been approached for a pivotal role on one of the top GEC, but cannot divulge details as of now”, quips the actress. When asked whether she is back to taking up major roles, she says, “Yes, I will surely consider if I get something good”.
Like all her ardent fans we too hope she makes her comeback soon!
