Raj Babbar‘s son, Prateik Babbar made a promising debut with Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na as Genelia Deshmukh‘s on-screen brother. Then he went on to impress everyone with his performance in Kiran Rao‘s Dhobi Ghat. However, he couldn’t really live to the expectations of the audience in the rest of his films. But his loyalists continued to shower him with love. And apparently, that bothered him. The actor has spoken about battling drug addiction in the past. Recently, he told IANS:
There was a part of my life that people didn’t know about. All these years, people, fans and admirers saw me in a certain way as a good actor, a happy guy. But that wasn’t the case. I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t being good to myself. I was a heavy addict. It was a huge problem.
Prateik also shared that he’s a work in progress and plans to pen down a book about his battle with drug addiction. More strength to you, Prateik!
