Former captain of the Indian netball team, Prachi Tehlan, who impressed viewers with her performance in her debut Punjabi film, “Arjan,” will now be seen on Star Plus’ new show, “Ikyawann.”

Apart from the upcoming TV show, the sportswoman-turned-actress is also occupied with the shooting of her second Punjabi movie, “Bailaras,” which is scheduled to release Oct. 6.

Recently, she also shot her entry song in “Ikyawann.”

 “I am really excited but at the same time feel blessed about two movies releasing in a span of 6 months,” said the actress of “Diya Aur Baati Hum” fame. “I am working very hard to give out the best I have. Being honest, my ankles have swollen up badly after the ‘Ikyawann’ shoot. I have been shooting under the scorching sun for the whole day jumping dancing on a peppy Bollywood number.”

Tehlan, who had no intention of joining the glamor world, added: “I was least interested in being a part of tinsel town as my focus had always been sports. I have enjoyed every facade as a sportsperson despite the challenges, but today I feel that acting is probably the toughest profession. Though it demands you to be on your toes, I am still enjoying every bit of it.”
