After watching the trailer of Prateik and Amyra Dastur-starrer, Issaq, actor Aamir Khan  — who worked with Prateik in Dhobi Ghat (2010) — sees a lot of potential in the latter.

“I think there is great potential in Prateik. Though I didn’t get the chance to work with him again, I’m happy to see his good work. I liked his work when I saw the trailer,” said Aamir at the premiere of the film, recently.

Issaq, directed by Manish Tiwary, released this Friday and is based on William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo And Juliet.

“The director, Prateik’s and heroine’s work is looking very good. The way Benaras is portrayed is looking nice. I think the film is very promising and I feel it will be a good film. My best wishes are with the entire team,” Aamir added. Prateik’s father, veteran actor Raj Babbar also attended the screening.

Prateik’s connection with Aamir goes back even before Dhobi Ghat. The actor’s first big screen appearance was with a small role in Aamir’s 2008 production venture, Jaane Tu Ya...Jaane Na.
