Prateik Babbar, the son of actress Smita Patil and actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar has had a traumatic and difficult childhood. He grew up without the presence of his mother or father by his side. Not having the constant support of his father affected him but now it seems all is well in their household.
In an interview, he said, “My broken family bothered me. Dad was never around while I was growing up. He was always busy with his other family and I had to go and meet him at their house. Why did my mother pass away? It still hurts to come to terms with this reality.”
When asked him about his reconciliation he added, “There were a few misunderstandings but sometime ago I visited him on his birthday. Nadira, Juhi and Arya were all present. Now everything is fine.”
Interestingly, the father and son now have bonding sessions that are headed by Raj Babbar telling Prateik stories about his mother Smita.
Apparently, Prateik does the listening and Raj does the talking. With a series of flop films in his career and not having a strong father figure to look up to, we hope Prateik makes better choices in his future, now that he is back to bonding with his dad!
