In
2017,
Prateik
Babbar
opened
up
about
his
battle
with
drug
and
alcohol
addiction
for
the
first
time.
The
actor
revealed
that
his
first
experience
with
drugs
came
when
he
was
13,
which
soon
turned
into
an
addiction.
Following
multiple
episodes
that
made
him
feel
like
a
miserable
prisoner
of
drugs,
he
finally
decided
to
finally
seek
professional
help.
However,
the
road
to
recovery
was
a
rocky
one.

In
a
recent
interview
with
ETimes,
Prateik
talked
about
getting
sober,
and
trying
to
re-establish
himself
in
the
film
industry.

The
tabloid
quoted
the
Baaghi
2
actor
as
saying,
“It
must
have
been
2016-17,
when
I
went
clean
of
alcohol
and
drugs
for
a
few
months
in
a
row.
I
could
think
with
a
clear
head.
That’s
when
I
started
missing
my
work.
It
was
something
I
needed
for
my
soul
and
that
is
when
I
started
picking
up
different
kinds
of
roles.
I
rebooted
myself
with
plays
and
short
films.
I
did
things
for
no
money
at
all,
at
times.
I
did
things
for
free
for
people
to
just
remember
that
I
exist
and
I
haven’t
left
the
stage
yet.
I
had
to
test
the
waters
again.
Once
I
did
that,
there
was
no
looking
back.
One
show,
one
movie
led
to
another
with

Mulk

(2018),

Baaghi
2

(2018)
and

Chhichhore

(2019).
It
was
gradual.”

When
asked
about
the
responsibility
of
living
up
to
his
mother,
late
actress
Smita
Patil’s
name,
the
actor
said
that
he
does
feel
a
sense
of
responsibility
to
live
up
to
her
legacy.
Prateik
called
her
mother
a
‘magical
woman’ who
did
magical
things
in
a
short-lived
career
and
life.

“People
may
see
that
as
a
burden,
but
I
will
not
call
it
that.
If
it’s
seen
as
a
weight
on
my
shoulders,
I’d
say
it’s
one
that
I
am
proud
of.
I
will
carry
it
till
my
last
breath
with
absolute
pride.
My
mother
was
a
magical
woman,
who
did
magical
things
in
a
short-lived
career
and
life.
She
touched
way
too
many
people
and
she
is
a
part
of
our
country’s
cinema
heritage.
I
am
honoured
and
fortunate
to
be
her
son.
It
will
be
an
honour
to
be
able
to
live
up
to
her
name,
and
if
I
can
be
a
little
reflection
of
her,”
Prateik
told
ETimes.

Talking
about
how
he
wants
to
make
his
late
mother
proud,
the
actor
told
the
daily,
“I
am
trying
my
best
to
make
her
proud.
That’s
the
reason
I
am
here.
I
wish
I
could
be
a
little
like
her.
I
wish
I
can
make
her
parents,
my
aunt
and
myself
feel
a
little
content
in
saying
one
day
that
this
magical
woman
was
my
mother.
One
day,
when
I
am
old
and
frail,
I
want
to
be
able
to
look
back
and
say
that
I
really
did
what
I
could
to
make
my
mamma
proud.”

With
respect
to
Prateik’s
upcoming
films,
the
actor
will
next
be
seen
in
Akshay
Kumar’s

Bachchan
Pandey

and
Madhur
Bhandarkar’s

India
Lockdown
.
