Are Prateik and Amy Jackson just 'good friends'?
The 'Dhobi Ghat' star explains why their being spotted together is only natural
Is there something brewing between Prateik and his 'Ek Deewana Tha' (EDT) co-star, British model Amy Jackson? Lately, the two have been spotted together regularly at social dos. And now, as the award season draws nearer, Amy is apparently very keen to visit all the events with Prateik.
The buzz is that Prateik, who was first spotted in a cameo in 'Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na' (2008), is sure to be nominated for his role in 'Dhobi Ghat'.
“If Prateik and Amy turn up together, the focus will be on them, since he would be nominated and his chances of winning are also very high. So, the attention will naturally shift to the two,“ says an industry insider.
A team member from Prateik's management reveals that the actor is prepping to attend all the upcoming award functions. He has even asked the marketing team of Gautham Menon's 'EDT' to keep those dates aside.
Prateik, who has a reputation for being shy in Bollywood circles, is not perturbed by the speculation about him and Amy. “Amy and I are good friends and so it is natural for us to attend all the functions,“ he said.
For the uninitiated, Amy won the Miss Teen World competition (UK) in 2008, and starred in the 2010 Tamil flick, 'Madrasapattinam'. Apparently, she and Prateik grew close during the filming of 'EDT', which marks her debut in Bollywood.
