The 29-year-old actor adds that he is not rigid when it comes to genres. “I am a fan of cinema. The genre has never mattered much to me. I want to take up anything that excites me. It can be a drama, action or a comedy,” he says.

Prateik says that as of now he is going through scripts and preparing himself to be able to work long schedules. “I really want to get back to films, but it’s important for me to reach a stage where I am able to work continuously for 20-25 hours a day. This drug abuse has taken a toll on my body and I need to get in shape again. I am offered films, but I want to be absolutely ready. I am also working on my craft so that when I decide to take up a film, I am able to give my best to it,” he says.
