Earlier, Prateik Babbar, son of Smita Patil and Raj Babbar was offered Saawariya and he refused to do it. But now the actor is ready for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s production venture, My Friend Pinto. It will be his first lead role.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali was always wanted to work with Smita Patil once, but his wish didn’t fulfill. But the filmmaker has signed in her son Prateik for his next production, Raghav Dar will direct the film. Raghav has previously worked as assistant to Mani Ratnam on Guru and associate Assistant to Abbas Tyrewala for Jaane Tu Ya… Jaane Na. Prateik and Raghav met on the sets of Jaane Tu… and decided that someday they will work together in future.

Prateik did a cameo role in Jaane Tu… and received Jury Certificate for Outstanding Performance at Filmfare Awards. Regarding his career, Prateik’s aunt Manya Patil is pretty happy for him. She said, “Do you know Prateik was offered Saawariya at the very initial stage of the film when Sanjay was undecided about who to cast as the lead? But back then, Prateik was not interested in acting. He was at a stage in life where he was not sure which way to go next. Then Abbas offered him JTYJN. It seemed too small a role to me, but Abbas asked me to trust him with the role. And just like he had assured me, the role was good and Prateik’s career is shaping up well.”

However the actor said, “I’m happy to work with Mr. Bhansali.”

Hrithik Under Wraps

Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has become much secretive about his forthcoming film Guzzarish that he doesn’t even want to disclose Hrithik’s look in the film.

According to sources, Bhansali has covered the entire passage from Hrithik’s makeup room to the sets. Even camera cell phones are not allowed in the area when Hrithik walks out from the makeup van to the film set. He also advised the lead cast, staff members and even their relatives to switch off mobile phones. The headstrong SLB doesn’t like any kind of disturbance on sets, not even a beep.

Earlier also during Saawariya, he gave the same instructions to Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. So we hope this time it would not be tough for the crew members to follow his instructions.
