Prateik is very close to both Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao as they were the ones who launched him and gave him two important films (Jaane Tu... and Dhobi Ghat) of his career. Now when his film Issaq is coming after such a long gap, Prateik wants to start a fresh and wants to make sure everything goes right. When he got to know that the first trailer of the film will be out soon, he requested the producers to give him a copy of the trailer to show it to his mentors to take their feedback.
Prateik has put in a lot of effort in this film which is an adaptation of Romeo Juliet set in Banaras. He has gone through a lot of physical training and took diction classes to perfect the banarasi lingo. People who have seen the rushes also believe that the film will have a new Prateik whose career will take off from this film.
Presented by Jayantilal Gada's Pen India Pvt Ltd, produced by Shailesh R Singh and Dhaval Gada, directed by Manish Tiwary who earlier made Dil Dosti Etc., Issaq is slated to release in July this year.
