After recently coming clean about his battle with substance abuse, Prateik Babbar is now looking to get back to work. The actor will soon be seen in a web series called Shockers that has been directed by Faruk Kabir.
The series, which will feature horror stories, also stars actors like Kalki Koechlin, Amit Sadh, Dia Mirza and Amyra Dastur, among others. “Faruk is a close friend, and since web series are gaining popularity in India, I decided to do this one. Web series are such an effective platform. I think they’re going to become even more popular in the future,” says Prateik.
The actor, who shot to fame with Bollywood films like Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008) and Dhobi Ghat (2010), was last seen on the big screen in Issaq (2013). “I am keeping myself busy with small yet interesting projects like this web series. Hopefully, I will get more such work. I want to get the hang of being on a set again, before I sign a feature film,” says the Bollywood actor, who was also seen in Dum Maaro Dum (2011).
