Young Bollywood actor Prateik, who has impressed critics with his performance in Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na, Dhobi Ghat and Aarakshan, says megastar Amitabh Bachchan is his role model.
"There are many (actors), a lot of seniors... I respect everyone a lot. They have worked hard all their life, so I respect them all. But if you ask me about one role model, it has to be Amitji because even at this age, he works so much," said Prateik.
Talking further about what he admires in Big B, Prateik said: "Young actors like me get tired if we work as much as Amitji. He even sings his songs, he gives his voice to songs for films, and takes the burden of films on his shoulders... and he has been doing that for years, and it is a great thing. He is an ultimate role model for most of us young actors."
Nowadays, the 24-year-old is busy promoting his film My Friend Pinto, releasing Oct 14. The film also features Kalki Koechlin.
