Mumbai, May 30 (IANS) Actress Prachi Desai calls megastar Amitabh Bachchan an epitome of “soldier courage” and “encouragement” and would look for the same qualities in her partner.
“Mr. Bachchan has the soldier courage. He is just an epitome of that (soldier courage) for all of us,” Prachi said here Wednesday at Gillete’s campaign “Soldier For Women”.
“He has been there and always set an example for everybody in the industry,” she added.
In a career spanning more than four decades, the megastar has worked in over 180 films, including hits like “Zanjeer”, “Sholay”, “Abhimaan”, “Mili”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Dewaar” and “Agneepath”, and over the years he has became an institution that is inseparable from the lore of Indian cinema.
Prachi, who graduated from TV shows to movies with “Rock On 11”, is so floored by the megastar.
“I could gladly and proudly say that because I have met him in person. I am 100 percent sure that he has many more qualities than I just said,” the 24-year-old said.
Meanwhile, on being asked what qualities she would look for in her partner, she said, “The first thing I would look for would be somebody who is extremely supportive, encouraging and yes, he should have the soldier courage in him.”
Currently, Prachi is busy promoting her forthcoming release “Policegiri” that features actor Sanjay Dutt opposite her.
The film is slated to July 5.
