Name Gracy Singh doesn't need any introduction. She is the same girl who was made a household name by Aamir Khan once he launched her as a leading lady in Lagaan. Though she had done bit roles in films like Hu Tu Tu and Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain, it was Lagaan which did the trick for her.
Soon she was called the lucky mascot for her films as she featured in Gangaajal and Munnabhai MBBS. Both the films were critical as well as mass success and though an occasional Armaan did prove to be a chink in her armour, it was best forgotten since her other films were working.
However, a flurry of bad choices followed with each of her subsequent films ranging from Muskaan, Shart to Wajahh and Yehi Hai Zindagi turning out to be box office disasters. It was shocking to see the kind of film selection that Gracy was making and it didn't surprise when her subsequent films like Chanchal and Chooriyan found themselves stuck in the cans.
If this wasn't enough, her further fall from grace has been an appearance in soon to be released Desh Drohi which hardly seems to be a project that she would be proud to be associated with. Seemingly a jingoistic tale with Kamal Rashid Khan appearing as actor, producer, story, screenplay as well as dialogue writer, Desh Drohi is primarily an action tale which truly seems to be a misfit in the current scheme of Bollywood.
Directed by Jagdish Sharma, Desh Drohi was recently in news for the controversy centering on non-payment of dues to Rozza Catalano for her item number. Also starring Ravi Kishan, Manoj Tiwari and Hrishita Bhatt, the film is now getting ready for release.
