Prajakta Koli started her journey in the digital space, and over the years has made a place for herself as one of the most prominent faces in the Indian Entertainment Industry.
Apart from the multiple feathers that she dons in her hat including being the United Nations Climate Control Ambassador for India; being on the Board of Gates Foundation and running her own highly successful Youtube channel, Vidya Balan starrer murder mystery ’Neeyat’ is Prajakta’s second venture as an actor on the big screen.
Talking about working with names such as Vidya, Ram Kapoor, Rahul Bose and Neeraj Kabi among many others, Prajakta said, “I have been a Vidya Balan fan since forever, and just the fact that I get to share the screen with her was magical for me. And then there was the whole cast, I mean where else would I get to chill for two months with the likes of Ram Kapoor, Neeraj Kabi, Rahul Bose, Shahana Goswami, Shashank Arora, Niki Walia, Dipannita, Danesh. Just the fact that I get to be in the same room as them, see them perform, and also have the pleasure of having conversations with them was surreal.”
Further talking about what made her say instantly yes to this role, Prajakta added,”It is my second film and when I heard who all were a part of the film and who was making it, I just considered it a huge win if I got to act in the film and learn from everyone around me. Because it’s an ensemble cast and everyone was shooting together, being on set was the most fun part of the film. It was everything I had imagined and more”.
‘Neeyat’ is set in the breathtakingly beautiful highlands of Scotland, the engaging trailer takes the viewer into the glamourous world of billionaire Ashish Kapoor and his close circle of family and friends, where everyone is tangled in their own web of secrets. When Ashish Kapoor ends up being murdered at his own party, it is up to detective Mira Rao to uncover the hidden motives and mysteries in this classic whodunnit.
Audiences can expect edge-of-the-seat, captivating entertainment from this murder-mystery with Vidya looking especially refreshing in a never-seen-before avatar. The movie features a strong ensemble cast featuring Ram Kapoor, Rahul Bose, Neeraj Kabi, Amrita Puri, Shahana Goswami, Niki Walia, Dipannita Sharma, Shashank Arora, Prajakta Koli, Danesh Razvi, Ishika Mehra and Madhav Deval in pivotal roles.
