While news of what's brewing between Bollywood actor Prateik and his Ek Deewana Tha (EDT) co-star, British model Amy Jackson has been making the rounds for a while now, here's a new twist to the tale.
The two, who have regularly been spotted at social dos lately, have become quite a team at award functions. And now, as the award season draws nearer, Amy is apparently very keen to visit all the functions with Prateik.
The actor, who was first spotted in a cameo in Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na (2008), is sure to be nominated in the debutant actor category for his role in Dhobi Ghat.
"If Prateik and Amy turn up together, the focus will be on them, since he would be nominated and his chances of winning are also very high. So, the attention will naturally shift to the two," says an industry insider.
A team member from Prateik's management informs that the actor is prepping up to attend all the upcoming award functions. He has even asked the marketing team of Gautham Menon's EDT to keep those dates aside. "Amy and Prateik are very close, so it's natural that they will attend the shows together. Especially, thinking from Amy's point of view, she would like go to these events," feels the member.
Prateik, who is looked upon as a shy boy in Bollywood circles, is not perturbed at all. "Amy and I are good friends and so, it's natural for us to attend all the functions," he says.
Amy, for the uninitiated, won the Miss Teen World competition (in UK) in 2008, and starred in the 2010 Tamil flick, Madrasapattinam. Rumour mills, though, suggest that Prateik has found a new love interest in Amy. Apparently, the two grew close during the filming of EDT, which marks Amy's debut in Bollywood.
