Prachi Desai, whose claim to fame was her TV serial produced by Ekta Kapoor, had a cold war going on with Ekta Kapoor, after she moved out of her serial, to work on Farhan Akthaar’s Rock On. However things did get back to normal and Ekta and Prachi became good friends again. The release of Ekta Kapoor’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, where Prachi was the female lead, sent the message out, that both of them were back to being friends again. But things do not seem to right after Prachi accepted an offer from Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan.
Apparently Prachi Desai’s role in the sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, was cut and Sonali Bendre was signed for the same, without citing any reason and Ekta seems to be the reason behind it.

A source revealed, “Prachi was very much a part of the sequel when the script was being written. In fact, her character was more prominent than in the first part. Later, her role was cut down to four or five scenes. And then she found herself out of the project altogether. Then Sonali Bendre stepped in.”
A friend of the actress explained, “After Rock On!!, Ekta and Prachi sorted out their differences. They worked together in Once Upon … which gave Prachi’s career a huge boost. But then she signed Bol Bachchan. Despite being friends with Rohit Shetty, Ekta did not like it.”
Ever since then Prachi had been conspicuous by her absence at Ekta’s house parties. And tongues had started wagging. A friend defended Ekta, who is currently in Dubai, “Prachi was not even signed for the film. How can she be paired with Akshay Kumar? Sonali fit the role perfectly.” When asked about Prachi’s role in the film, director Milan Luthria said, “I’ve no idea where these stories are coming from.”
