BOY OH BOY
Prateik, 25, is the first celebrity to have made it to the cover of Men’s Health India, part of the India Today Group. The November cover spread that marks the magazine’s fifth anniversary also boasts of India’s first ever moving cover. In a scene straight out of a Harry Potter film, the electronic version of the cover on tablets, mobile phones and websites has a blinking and laughing Prateik. There is plenty by way of eye candy as well with the scrawny actor having transformed into a bulked up six-pack wonder. Says he, “The moving cover is great, but I’m honoured to simply be on the cover of Men’s Health. God knows I’ve slogged hard at the gym, and resisted too many doughnuts to qualify.” A small price to pay.
