Prateik Babbar, son of Bollywood veteran actress Smita Patil and Raj Babbar, entered Bollywood 13 years ago. He also received a lot of praise as soon as he came but he could not make a different place in the industry like the rest of the other star kids. However, now with many big projects, his career seems to be going ahead with a bang. At the same time, in a recent interview, Prateek has openly talked about his fight with alcohol and drugs, along with the upcoming films. He told that he wants to illuminate the name of his mother Smita Patil.
Prateek Babbar is going to appear in big films like ‘Mumbai Saga’, ‘Brahmastra’, ‘Idea Lockdown’ and ‘Bachchan Pandey’ in the coming times. Recently, during a conversation with the Times of India, he talked about addiction to alcohol and drugs. He said- ‘It must have been 2016-17 when I cleared for a few months from alcohol and drugs. I was thinking clearly ‘. The actor said that he had begun to miss his work. Prateek says that his soul needed it, so he started doing different types of rolls, many even without money.
Prateek told that ‘I also did many things for free to remind people that I exist and I have not left the stage yet. When I examined everything, I did not look back. One show resembled one film. Mulk, Baghi and Chhichore, it happened slowly ‘.
Prateek says that ‘I consider myself responsible for my mother’s legacy. People may call it a weight but I would not call it like that. If it will be seen as a weight on my shoulders, then I will say that I am proud of it ‘. Talking about her mother, Prateek said- ‘My mother was a magical woman, she has done many magic things in her very short career and life. She touched many hearts and was a part of the cinema heritage of this country. If I can qualify for his name, it would be an honor for me and I wish I could become his shadow ‘.
