I enjoy pottery, balloon sculpting says Prachi Desai
Not many know that Bollywood actress Prachi Desai, who rose to fame with films like Rock On!! and Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, loves balloon sculpting, pottery and dancing. She also loves globe trotting and feels travelling has made her a better person.
“I started working at a young age. So I never got time to learn things that I always wanted to. Like I want to learn classical dancing. I enjoy pottery and balloon sculpting too. It’s fun and relaxing,” Prachi told IANS.
She was here on Tuesday for an event organised by Tata Sky to launch its new service called Do It Yourself, which enables the users to watch multiple videos on TV.
The 24-year-old, who started her journey in showbiz with popular TV show Kasamh Se, is nowadays busy filming KS Ravikumar’s Policegiri and Vikram Bhatt’s 1920 franchise.
She was looking gorgeous in a short one-piece dress and high heels, and the fashionista admitted that she keeps track of latest trends.
“I do keep a check on what’s in trend and what’s not, but I wear what I feel comfortable in. I do not just blindly follow the trend. I often experiment with my wardrobe. But I wear what I like,” she said.
Prachi, however, revealed that since she is busy with films, she won’t walk the ramp for any designer at the Wills India Lifestyle Fashion Week 2013.
“My next film, Policegiri is in its post-production stage. I am playing a girl-next-door. She is a software engineer. It’s set to release on April 14, so I’ll be busy with its promotion,” she said.
“Apart from this, I am also working in 1920. I play a princess in the film. It’s a horror film but I won’t be wearing white clothes, coloured lenses or scary make-up,” joked Prachi adding, “We will be shooting in London. I have never done horror. So I am pretty excited about it.”
When asked if she likes travelling, she said, “I love it. It’s my dream to go to Milan. It’s on my wish list. When I travel, I always manage to take out time to try local cuisine and explore markets. Now I get to travel a lot and I feel travelling has made me a better person.”
Prachi loves the weather in Delhi, but said Mumbai’s weather doesn’t allow her to walk out without face protection.
“I do yoga in the morning. I drink a lot of water. And I apply sunscreen lotion after every six hours,” she said.
Pottery is the process and the products of forming vessels and other objects with clay and other ceramic materials, which are fired at high temperatures to give them a hard, durable form. Major types include earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. The place where such wares are made by a potter is also called a pottery (plural “potteries”). The definition of pottery used by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is “all fired ceramic wares that contain clay when formed, except technical, structural, and refractory products.” In archaeology, especially of ancient and prehistoric periods, “pottery” often means vessels only, and figures of the same material are called “terracottas”. Clay as a part of the materials used is required by some definitions of pottery, but this is dubious.
Balloon modelling or balloon twisting is the shaping of special modelling balloons into almost any given shape, often a balloon animal. People who create balloon animals and other twisted balloon sculptures are called Twisters, Balloon Benders, and Balloon Artists. Twisters often perform in restaurants, at birthday parties, fairs and at public and private events or functions.
