"आगे बढ़कर प्रणाम किया" या "प्रणाम करने के लिए आगे बढ़ा/बढ़ी" के पीछे मकसद तो प्रणाम करना ही है। Also, "he/she came forward to greet" sounds better than "he/she went forward and greeted".

Explanation:
In Hindi 'vo' is used for 'he' as a mark of respect to elders/respected persons, so here 'vo' should not be confused with 'they'.
