Later this year, Prachi Desai will make her Telugu-language debut in the Amazon Prime Video series Dhootha. Actor Naga Chaitanya, who has been a well-known name and face in the cinema industry for more than ten years, makes his streaming debut with the show. In a recent conversation, Prachi discussed her experience working with Naga Chaitanya and reading lines in a language she neither speaks nor understands.
The Azhar actress said, “I don’t really know how much to say about Chay because he has been a wonderful co-star, immensely patient, and just so nice to be around. I think he is the most humble star I have probably met in my life, just very genuine. Working with him was really great.”
The contrast between the actors, when it comes to proficiency in Telugu, is apparent and Prachi knows that all too well. But she says that Chaitanya went out of his way to make sure she was comfortable with the language barrier on sets. She added, “It’s his mother tongue so it comes naturally to him. It’s like us doing Hindi films, it’s such a familiar zone. For him, it was like coming back to one of those sets but then having a person in front of you who doesn’t understand anything about the language. I’ll give you an instance about the kind of person he is. He knew that I don’t understand the language so at one point I said, ‘just before the dialogue, will you remind me what this particular paragraph means’. Those are big scenes and you’re shooting them in one go. If you don’t understand the language, you don’t know what the scene means. The kind of actor that I am, I really like to listen to everything so that I can respond and take it all in so that I perform instinctively. So, when it came to my close-up, he used to say all of it (his lines) in English because that is how I would understand everything he was saying in the scene. Those are really the kind of things that reflect on how a person is and how much they value their job as well as how supportive they are of the other person. That was really heart-warming.”
The plot of Dhootha centers around a number of strange deaths, disappearances, and other events that all point to a single location, where Naga Chaitanya invariably finds himself in the center.
