“The sense of pride and happiness I saw on their faces at the time, almost as if ‘oh this is our little girl and now she’s going to do this’. I couldn’t have asked for anything more or anything better. It also instils a sense of confidence in you. You feel like you are doing the right thing or this is something that you will be proud of later. That just felt so so so great," said Prachi Desai.

How did Ektaa Kapoor and Ram Kapoor react to Prachi Desai exiting Kasamh Se?

Kasamh Se was one of the most popular shows at that time. So announcing that she wanted to leave the show for her Bollywood film was quite a big deal. However, the actress recalled that Ektaa and Ram did not think about their show and worry about TRPs, they were just happy about her growth. Calling it a selfless act, the actress said, "I think it was quite selfless in a sense because they did not think about their show and worry about present TRPs and how can we just let her go. I don’t think that was the thought at all."

"I felt that selflessness is something that you find rarely, someone being happy for you to move on while you are actually collaborating with them. So that was amazing on their part,” Prachi concluded.
