Actress Prachi Tehlan is making her debut in the Malayalam film industry with the epic drama Mamamgam. The historical saga is said to be based on a true event and has been in the making for two years now. Tehlan, 26, plays Unnimaya, a Devdaasi in the movie. The film is about to release in two days but it is still unclear whether Tehlan is romantically paired opposite the South superstar Mammootty. Meanwhile, the actress is quite keen to work with the superstar's star son Dulquer Salman who by now can easily be tagged as the national crush. About Dulquer, Prachi has a funny story to share as well.
In an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife, Prachi revealed that her ex-boyfriend resembled a lot like Dulquer Salman. "It’s a funny story," the actress shares, "I had an ex-boyfriend before being an actress. He had a lot of resemblance to Dulquer Salman. And after becoming an actor after 3 years, I’m working with his dad. It’s kind of interesting and also scary how life plays with you at times." Talking further about The Zoya Factor actor, Prachi added, "I've not met Dulquer. (But) I’m very fond of Dulquer. His personality, to the way he conducts himself. Though my ex was not like that for sure. For instance, he once told that he never wants to do films that are a remake of his father. I really respect that. I would love to work with Dulquer (someday)."
The actress also shared the bond she shared with her co-actor and legend Mammooty. "For Mamooka I always had a lot of respect. Over 48 years of experience!" she exclaims and adds, "I always had a lot of questions whenever we met. While sharing his experience in cinema, he told me how today he is competing not just the actors of his generation but also from the current lot which also includes his own son. We also spoke about his granddaughter, he showed me the drastic changes he had to go through for his character. The kind of aura (he has) is charming and refreshing."
In the interview, Prachi Tehlan had opened her heart about the dark times she had to go through. "Even after doing a big film like Mamangam there have been six months of my life where I was depressed. I didn’t know what to do. Even if people knew that I'm doing the film, they would congratulate me but they would not approach me for work. I’ve gone through lows, I’ve gone through times when I’ve woken up crying, slept while crying. I don’t know if I can call them anxiety or depression since they are very strong words to be used, but there was something. But my family and friends were quite supportive," she poured her heart out.
