The Final Truth. However, her part was removed and it did not make it to the final cut of the film. Asked if that really upset her, Pragya replied,

“I was informed about that decision well in advance…It’s not an easy decision to make so I was kept in the loop right from the beginning & hence it didn’t upset me much…It was done for the larger interest of the film and was done in the most respectful manner so I was on the same page as the makers of the film.

” 7 years in the industry was a roller-coster ride but an enriching one.

Sharing about it, Pragya says, “My journey in the film industry has been an enriching one…I’ve learnt a lot from all the highs & the lows…

But 2021 felt like a fresh start to me because of the 2 amazing projects that I was working on and now there is no looking back.”  

Calling 2021 the most significant and memorable year, she added, “because I got a chance to work with two of the biggest superstars in our country -Balakrishna Sir and Salman Sir which eventually resulted in the biggest hit I have given in my career and the most beautiful song that a girl can dream of.”
