Missing the sizzle
Someone needs to tell Prachi Desai that she cannot pull off a sexy item number. Watching her perform the Awari song from Ek Villain on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa was evidence enough that Desai is better off playing the sweet girl-next-door. Apparently, the song also features a surprise male appearance. Ek Villain, releasing on June 27, stars Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh. Director Mohit Suri’s stock is clearly on the rise after the tremendous success of Aashiqui 2. Not only will he be directing Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi in Humari Adhuri Kahaani, but he has also been signed on by Karan Johar to helm the Indian remake of the bittersweet French comedy, The Intouchables.
