Want to do Kalpana Chawla, Gayatri Devi biopics: Prachi

Asked whom would she like to portray in a biopic, Prachi told IANS: “There would be plenty… Actually there are two that I can name right now because they are drastically different. One would be Kalpana Chawla and the other would be Gayatri Devi.”
Prachi, who shared screen space with actor Emraan Hashmi for the second time in “Azhar”, which will premiere on Sony Max on August 14, says both the persons are “amazingly different”.
