Pwincess_M 8 years ago I am glad Prachi Desai said no to Bold scenes. Shows that she is humane and has some shame. Other actresses should take a lesson from her. You dont need to show body to be successful in Bolywood. Also, is Kunal Deshmukh crazy? He dosent consider kissing, etc BOLD? In our culture were taught that it is taboo and a shameful act. What a dumbo!
