Bollywood actor Prateik Babbar who recently seen in ‘Mulk’ says that his career developed slowly because of his drug addiction and he takes full responsibility for his actions.
Speaking at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai, Prateik Babbar told reporters that he blames himself as much as the “unfortunate circumstances” for his slow career.
“Yes, I take full responsibility for my actions and blame myself and unfortunate circumstances together,” IANS quoted him as saying.
“I feel this decade of my journey in this industry has been one hell of a roller-coaster ride,” he said, adding: “I do not regret anything but one thing, that my grandparents were unable to see all the good in my life at this point of my life. I believe regrets are a burden and having them would only drag them down.”
Talking about the stigma being attached to those who are or were into drug abuse, Prateik said: “For users, abusers and addicts being called a drug addict is much deeper than someone just bringing it up in a casual conversation. The topic is a very sensitive topic and needs to be addressed to any person in a very polite manner.”
Prateik is now looking for more “impactful” characters to portray on the silver screen. “I believe that content-driven impactful characters are a challenge to portray but are also iconic characters and that is something I feel that I am inclined towards and looking forward to,” he said.
Prateik Babbar is now gearing up to play antagonist opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in director Nitesh Tiwari’s next film, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor.
