Prateik, who has grown up watching the films of both Salman and Shahrukh is apparently very pained to know that the two great Khans of Bollywood are not in talking terms and has come up with a plan to unite them before the release of his first solo-film My Friend Pinto, directed by Raghav Dar and produced jointly by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ronnie Screwvala. Prateik is paired opposite Kalki Koechlin in the film.
Speaking to a tabloid, Prateik Babbar said, “I can't understand why they're not friends! They're both so comfortable with their stardom and not threatened by anyone else's success. They're wonderful human beings. I know them both and I love them equally. I want to bring them together because I see it as a futile war."
However, Prateik refuses to reveal his plan as he is superstitious. The actor, who debuted with Aamir Khan"s Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na says that on the premiere of his film My Friend Pinto, he hopes that both Salman and Shahrukh will do a dance with him - “one of peace and friendship," said Prateik.
Prateik loves both SRK and Sallu and cannot stop talking about them. He said, “I grew up hero-worshipping both Salman and Shah Rukh. I identify with both of them. Like Salman, I am considered a star-kid. But like Shahrukh, I feel like an outsider in the film industry."
Several stars and celebrities have tried to bring about a reconciliation between Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, but in vain. Now, the young and bubbling Prateik Babbar is very confident of bringing the two Khans back again. He said, “What is their problem with one another? It's all very strange! I am going to get to the bottom of it. Imagine how wonderful it would be if they both become friends... I will manage it."
Well, let"s hope Prateik succeeds in his endeavour and let"s hope to see Shahrukh and Salman become the same old buddies they once were.
