"I believe in working hard and giving my best shot. My films do well at the box office or not, that's not in my hands. I always take criticism in a positive way and try to give my best," Prateik, best known for films like ‘Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na’ (2008) and ‘Dhobi Ghat’ (2011) said.

His previous films like ‘My Friend Pinto’ (2011) and ‘Ekk Deewana Tha’ (2012) were not a big success and his latest release, director Manish Tiwary's "Issaq", a modern adaptation of William Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet", got a lukewarm response at the box office.

Prateik, son of actor-politician Raj Babbar and late actress Smita Patil, also said that being a star kid definitely helps in the industry but it is hardwork that takes you forward.

Talking about his dad, he said, "I share a friendly relationship with my father. I can discuss anything with him. He is my guide and support in the industry.”

As far as fitness is concerned, Prateik said, "I do like having a good body. I work out and follow a strict diet, which includes green vegetables and white meats. Also, I keep changing my fitness regime according to my roles in different films."
