Prachi Desai says television is a regressive medium!

She made it big with television show, but actor Prachi Desai does not approve of how the medium has become today and feels that it is regressive in nature

“I think, I was a part of TV in a more fortunate time. Even though my story was of a girl being in love with an older man, it was a slightly modern drama as compared to what it is right now. It is extremely regressive,” she told reporters in an interview.

Before venturing into movie with 2008 hit Rock On!!, she featured as Bani Walia in hit show Kasamh Se in 2006.

“You feel that everyone is doing the same thing and copying each other. When I was in TV, there were so many different stories. I think that stage has gone,” she said.

An Ekta Kapoor discovery, Prachi has been part of films like Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and Bol Bachchan.

Will you go back to TV?

“If a very interesting phase on Indian TV comes where we have short stories and films, then why not? At the end of the day, you are an actor and the medium doesn`t matter,” she said.

However, she can`t think of doing a daily soap.

“I surely cannot go back to daily soaps. That is something I know. At least not right now. It`s a decision I made when I did Rock On!!” said the 24-year-old.

She feels in India you can`t do both. “You can`t be a film star and a TV actor. In the West you can. But the culture here is different,” she added.
