Prachi Tehlan, known for her spectacular performance in films like Mamangam and Arjan, can’t contain her happiness as she attended one of the biggest award functions – IIFA - for the first time. The actor recently shared her experience and revealed how it boosted her confidence and passion towards her work.
“It was indeed my first IIFA and I was invited as the guest. For me, awards have always been about either participating in the event or getting nominated. But when I got invited for IIFA as a guest, I thought why not experience the gala. After all, we have grown up watching and listening about it. I must say, it was truly amazing. Seeing all those successful people getting felicitated for their hard work motivated me to keep pushing my boundaries. It made me strive to work harder. So the next time, I am invited to IIFA, it’s not as a guest but for my films or for performing,” said the actor.
Prachi also talked about behind the scenes of IIFA and atmosphere of the place before and after the main event. “First of all, the production value of IIFA is something that I had never experienced before at any award show. The whole team must have worked day and night to make that event such a huge success. Secondly, since the show was held in Abu Dhabi, all the guests. media and participants stayed in hotels close to each other. That made it a very close-knitted event where everybody could interact with everybody. Seeing Salman Khan host the evening was an experience of its kind and the after parties added more fun to the whole celebration.”
The actor, who also has been part of several television shows including Diya aur Baati Hum, wore three designers during the event which was styled by Rishu- namely Rinkoo Shroff, Deevee Couture and Label Ambrosia.
The actress is excited for a huge line-up of projects ahead this year.
