Prateik Babbar was always known as a wild child, having battled drug problems and a wayward lifestyle. But many believed that the late Smita Patil’s son had gotten over his wild ways after his recent marriage. However, Prateik has left his fans shocked with his recent antic – posting a picture of himself with his wife, covering her intimate part! The picture has left his family deeply embarrassed.
Prateik has been mercilessly trolled for his insensitivity, and not just towards his wife’s privacy but also for sharing such pics at a time when most Bollywood celebs were expressing grief at the terror attack at Pulwama.
Prateik’s father, actor Raj Babbar, who is the President of the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee refrained from comment but a source close to him spoke about how troubled the parliamentarian-father is by his son’s behaviour. “Prateik has always been uncontrollable. After his mother passed immediately after Prateik’s birth, the boy was brought up by doting maternal grandparents and his aunt. They spoilt him silly. Prateik got into the wrong company and began doing banned substances. Raj Babbarji has tried his level-best to reason with Prateik. But it doesn’t work.”
Apparently, Prateik didn’t even inform his father about his marriage. The latest and perhaps the worst embarrassment to the politician is Prateik’s attention-getting picture with his wife which Babbar is being asked about by the Congress. “What can he say? That his son doesn’t listen to him?” asks Raj Babbar’s friend.
A director who recently worked with Prateik says, “Prateik is just a silly boy. Who posts such vulgar pictures of their own wife? He’s doing it for attention. We should just ignore him.”
However, Prateik has now taken this post down from his Instagram account.
