The thought of shooting a bathtub scene gave her the jitters

For Prachi Desai, making a transition from a sari-clad bahu to a modern woman in Rock On wasn’t that tough. But is she ready to take on the bold roles that require her to show skin to the camera.
Nopes! if a recent incident on the sets of director Rumi Jaffery’s film Life Partner is to go by. A song from the film required Prachi to drop her inhibitions as well as clothes. It comes at a point in the story when a newly-wed Prachi and her hubby Tusshar Kapoor get romantic on their honeymoon and she steps into a bathtub.
Now, Prachi was so shy about stepping into the bathtub in front of the shooting crew that she gave certain suggestions to the director to escape the situation. She reportedly told the director that she could dance in front of the bathtub instead of lying in it. Or she suggested wrapping herself in a shawl in the bathtub.
Expectedly, the suggestions were shot down by the director and the poor Prachi had to battle her shyness. She finally did the scene with many ‘ifs and buts’ and of course with the shawl!
