“The shoot of Aarakshan was unbelievable” – Prateik

Prateik Babbar

After working with the who’s who of our industry, many actors, after spending almost a decade or more, consider themselves lucky. Some think it’s a blessing in disguise when they rub shoulders with the only Big B of our industry, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. Enter Prateik. In his fourth film, he has managed to do just that. Prateik was blown away by the 68 year old man’s passion for acting and his undying energies on the sets. But first, here’s what the young protégé has to say about his experience of working on Aarakshan with Prakash Jha.


“The shoot of Aarakshan was unbelievable. Unlike Rohan Sippy, Prakash Jha is very up there. He is elder too and more experienced. He knows so much about the art. He is super confident and a dream to work with. Touchwood, I’ve been pretty lucky to work with really good people. I want to give my directors everything what they want from me”, quotes Prateik.


Call it coincidence, but Prateik cannot believe his luck that in the career span of just four films, he has worked with not just one, but both the Bachchans. Abhishek in Dum Maaro Dum and Big B in Aarakshan.


The actor recalls, “What a coincidence this is that I am working with both the Bachchans in my early days as an actor. I’ve worked with Abhishek in Dum Maaro Dum and now with Amitabh Bachchan in Aarakshan. God’s been kind. Amitji is a living legend.”


And before I ask him another question he jumps in. I’m sure when any actor talks about the towering personality of Mr. Bachchan, you just can’t help but keep going ga-ga about India’s beloved actor, “No matter how tired he is, he likes to entertain everyone on the sets, be it the cast or the crew. Amitji used to mix along with the junior artists, worked for long hours and still deliver one line with sheer perfection in spite of exhaustion”, Prateik comments.


And it’s not just our Indian actors who influence youngsters like Prateik who’ve just entered our film industry. Appreciating all kinds of talent, home and foreign, the actor says, “I appreciate all kinds of talent, whether it is Christian Bale in The Fighter or Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. Bale is a great actor and raises his craft to another level. Same with the Late Heath Ledger. And they have not only been my inspiration but for the many actors around the many more to come I’m sure. Such great talents motivate you to do much better in life.”
