He has been in the industry for around five years and has been part of seven films, among them, Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na, Aarakshan and Dhobi Ghat, but even then actor Prateik Babbar is yet to get a strong foothold in the industry. Ask this 26-year-old about his journey so far and he says, “There have been some hits…some misses. My journey has been slow but steady but I want to assure everyone that I am raring to go and make it big. I want to do different roles and explore different horizons.”
Work aside, Prateik had been in news because of his affair with actor Amy Jackson and the break up following it. When asked about the same he says, “I am not in touch with Amy. I’m single at the moment. I believe that relationships come and go and that’s the way of life. Some work, some don’t. I believe in taking the positives and moving on.”
Interestingly, the son of actor Raj Babbar and Smita Patil doesn’t want to use his filmy background for his career. “I feel blessed that I am the son of such great actors. I am proud to be Raj and Smita’s prateik (symbol). I want to contribute to the world of cinema and make them proud. I will be most satisfied when I make a name for myself as I don’t believe in using my family name to get work,” says Prateik.
