Prateik Babbar started his career showing a lot of promise with his debut role in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008). He subsequently starred in films like Dhobi Ghat, Dum Maaro Dum and Ekk Deewana Tha. There was a time when he saw a slump in his career, which he eventually came out of, doing films like Baaghi 2 and Mulk in 2018.
In 2016-2017 Prateik realised he had gone off track and he needed to get his life and career back on the road. “What saved me from drowning mentally and emotionally, and I say saved, because I thought everything was over for me and my career was done with, was the love and passion for the arts,” he told TOI in an interview.
