Prateik Babbar, son of yesteryear actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar and late actress Smita Patil, had lost his mother at a very young age. Smita Patil was one of the iconic faces in the film industry and lost her life due to childbirth complications.
Although he never had the chance to be with her and get the love from her, Prateik Babbar always remembers her and praises her legendary work. On December 13, Prateik Babbar penned down an emotional message for his late mother on her 30th death anniversary. He wrote, “My mother died Today! 30 years ago on the 13th of December. Smita’s spirit still lives on.. And lives on with pride and honour and dignity! 30’years later Smita still manages to make an entire country miss her.. be proud of who she was and what she achieved.. and the wonderful things she did for people. She truly was special. An Angel. God sent.. Truly.. She was gods child. But then the gods got greedy and wanted to keep her for themselves. Yess They got the better of her. She always made us so proud and will continue to make us proud and continue to inspire so many.. R.I.P. Smita Patil 1955-1986. I love her.. as much as I hate her for never being there. I’m grateful that I’m her son. A son of a great woman! A true icon! A legend!. I will make her proud! And I will not rest till I do!”
On the work front, Prateik Babbar was last seen in a dramedy titled Umrika in 2015.
