Prateik Babbar, the only child of the legendary actress Smita Patil and actor Raj Babbar, lost his mother when he was born. Since it was Raj Babbar’s second marriage with the actress, he went back to his first wife and children once she passed away due to complications in childbirth. Prateik Babbar was raised by his maternal grandparents and did not have a normal childhood. As a young child, Prateik Babar always had resentments for his father and his old family as his opinion was clouded by that of the people around him.
Prateik Babbar recently shared photos of his mother Smita Patil on the occasion of her sixty-fourth birth anniversary with captions like, ‘do not breathe.. what people will think” ~ smita patil (1955-1986) rest in power ‘ and ‘happy birthday to my gorgeous lady’.
Smita Patil died in 1986 but is still in the hearts of the people due to her strong and realistic acting skills. Her fans were all over the post to pay homage to the veteran actress.
‘Stunning as ever, and stellar performances on screen! She truly is a gem the world didn’t deserve!’
‘(Rest in power) that's really incredible’
‘I'm glad me and this beautiful immortal soul, share the same zodiac sign.. Libra.. Pratik you too must a great soul .. i believe’
‘Bold and beautiful is an understatement for this lady.what a force’
Although Prateik Babbar did not spend time with Smita Patil, he often posts pictures of his beautiful mother indicating that he misses her all the time.
Prateik Babbar made his debut in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na with Genelia D’Souza and Imran Khan. Although the role was brief, Prateik Babbar was widely appreciated for his realistic and understated acting which reminded people of his late mother Smita Patil. However, the young actor could not handle success due to his traumatizing childhood and got involved in drugs. After some time, he decided to recollect himself and make a new start altogether. Prateik Babbar now shares a close bond with his father Raj Babbar and half-siblings. He is happily married and is working hard to produce quality work in Bollywood. Prateik Babbar was last seen in the film Chhichhore where he played the role of an antagonist with Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor. The film did great business at the box office. He will soon be seen in the film Yaaram.
