Ac­tor Prateik Bab­bar (left) is on the look out for films with mes­sages, as he wants to help peo­ple through the projects which he takes up. “I have been brain­storm­ing about the kind of films which I want to take up and I have come to the con­clu­sion that I want to do films with mes­sages. I want to play some­one who un­der­goes some sort of strug­gle and pain and comes out of it, as I feel that these roles will work for me at this stage,” says Prateik, who re­cently spoke about his strug­gle with drug abuse.

The 29-year-old ac­tor adds that he is not rigid when it comes to gen­res. “I am a fan of cin­ema, the genre has never mat­tered much to me. I want to take up any­thing that excites me. It can be a drama, ac­tion or a com­edy,” he says.

Prateik says that as of now he is go­ing through scripts and pre­par­ing him­self to be able to work long sched­ules. “I re­ally want to get back to films, but it’s im­por­tant for me to reach a stage where I am able to work con­tin­u­ously for 20-25 hours a day. This drug abuse has taken a toll on my body and I need to get in shape again. I am of­fered films, but I want to be ab­so­lutely ready. I am also work­ing on my craft so that when I de­cide to take up a film, I am able to give my best to it,” he says. Prateik’s last re­lease was Um­rika in 2015. He will be seen in a pro­ject in the com­ing year.
