After a tumultuous period a few years ago, Prateik Babbar is looking up on both professional and personal fronts. From his link-ups, battle with drugs to a lull in his film career, the actor is now going great guns, not just after marriage with Sanya Sagar, but with numerous movies in his kitty. The ‘Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Star’ star has now bagged a biggie, coming on board as the antagonist in Rajinikanth’s ‘Darbar.’
Prateik said that the film is a ‘dream come true’ moment for him and that everything has been going positive for him after Sanya entered his life.
The actor added that he is looking forward to ‘create magic’ as he shoots with the megastar.
"It is such a dream come true to have bagged this project in such little time. This year is looking very positive for me and Sanya (Sagar) has been such a great influence on my life professionally and personally," Prateik said in a statement.
"I can't wait to commence shooting with Rajinikanth sir and AR Murugadoss sir this week and create some magic," he further stated.
After a phase of almost five years without any major release, Prateik bounced back with movies like the superhit ‘Baaghi 2’ and critically acclaimed ‘Mulk’ last year.
Moreover, according to reports, he is also set to feature in the much-anticipated ‘Brahmastra’ and ‘Dangal’ director Nitesh Tiwari’s ‘Chhichhore’.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has begun the shooting of ‘Darbar’ in Mumbai. The movie, being directed by AR Murugadoss also stars Nayanthara and the first look was shared last week.
Rajinikanth is reportedly playing a cop in the movie, which is targetting a release on Pongal early next year.
