Prateik has never been close to his father Raj Babbar or his step-family, though they were present at the premiere of his first film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa. Truth is that the young actor wants to create his own identity. However gossipmongers say the reason is more personal. Anyway thus it is common knowledge among film folks that Prateik doesn’t like to suffix his surname Babbar. So at a college event when the compere addressed him as ‘Prateik Babbar’ he refused to go on stage. It was after moments of awkwardness and silence, the compere rectified the mistake and called out his name, this time only Prateik. Finally he did join his co-star Kalki Koechlin on the stage. It looks like this time the My Friend Pinto actor wants to make it loud and clear!
