Happy Birthday, Prateik!

Son of talented actors Smita Patil and Raj Babbar, Prateik was born with the Bollywood bug. He may seem quiet and reserved but he shows off a unique and confident style. As the young actor celebrates his birthday today, we wish him a great day and a filmy year ahead

Prateik wowed us with his raw looks and unconventional acting style in his debut film Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na. He became an instant favourite amongst youngsters, while B-town went raving mad praising the new talent. He may not have played the lead in the film but still managed to steal the thunder. Son of two acting powerhouses – Smita Patil and Raj Babbar – Prateik seems to have acting imprinted in his DNA. Three years and five films later, this talented actor has carved out a niche for himself in the industry. He stole everyone’s heart as the endearing Munna in Dhobi Ghat, stunned us as the fiery Sushant in Aarakshan, impressed in Dum Maaro Dum and left us spellbound with his dance moves and his innocent guy looks in My Friend Pinto. Prateik has proved himself time and again and promises to keep it going. As the actor turns 25 today, we wish him all the success and hope he continues to wow us!
