Prachi Desai returns to share screen with Manoj Bajpayee in a thriller



Prachi Desai is back in action and how. Starring alongside Manoj Bajpayee and Arjun Mathur, the talented actress is all set to return to the screens with her digital debut in Silence Can You Hear It and this time, we will see her don the character of a cop for the very first time. The thriller is going to be a total head-scratcher as the mystery traces the mysterious disappearance of a woman whose corpse turns up a day after she goes missing, discovered by a group of trekkers. The actress plays the character of Inspector Sanjana in the film who is feisty, strong-willed, and a risk-taker.

Talking about her character, Prachi Desai tells us, “Where there’s a murder, there’s an investigating officer and that’s what I play in this splendid murder mystery. Inspector Sanjana is a character that’s not one to back down easily – she’s strong, she’s feisty and she’s all about dedication. Although she’s young, she’s very professional who looks up to Manoj Bajpayee’s character, ACP Avinash Verma because of his ferociousness and dedication towards the case and aspires to be like him one day. The audience has never seen me play such a role before and I’m very excited to see their reactions to it in the film.”

Silence Can You Hear It is slated to release on an OTT platform, but official word on which OTT platform will showcase it is still awaited. So, are you excited for Prachi Desai’s comeback movie?


‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Peaky Blinders’ star Helen McCory dies due to cancer



British film, television and stage actress Helen McCrory has died aged 52 from cancer, her husband and fellow actor Damian Lewis said on Thursday. McCrory “died peacefully at home surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family”, Lewis wrote on Twitter, calling his late wife “beautiful and mighty”.

“We love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly,” the actor added, explaining she had died “after a heroic battle with cancer”.McCrory was best known as a star of the hit BBC crime drama ‘Peaky Blinders’ and for the role of Narcissa Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” films, as the mother of the boy wizard’s school-aged rival.

She played Cherie Blair, the wife of former British prime minister Tony Blair, twice in both the “The Queen” (2006) and “The Special Relationship” (2010), and played fictional British interior minister Clair Dowar in the James Bond film “Skyfall” (2012).

Born in Paddington in west London in 1968 to a Welsh mother and Scottish-born father, McCrory was the eldest of three children. She attended school in southeast England and spent a year living in Italy before studying acting at London’s Drama Centre.

A lengthy acting career followed, which saw her play a multitude of roles on the small and big screen, as well as on stage. McCrory and Lewis, who starred in the US TV series Homeland, married in 2007. The pair met performing in the Shakespeare play “Much Ado About Nothing” as comedic protagonists Beatrice and Benedick.


In 2011, she told the Independent newspaper she had eschewed celebrity but was honoured to have played such interesting roles. An actor’s job, she said, was to “reassure the audience that life, as muddled and as wonderful as it is, is worth living”.
