Prateik, who is known to take his role seriously, is not leaving any stone unturned for playing his character perfectly in the film Issaq. The actor, who plays a Banarasi Romeo, underwent diction and physical training to get into the skin of the character. Prateik went a step ahead and even took training for fire dance and Parkour to be able to do his action sequences himself in the film.
Based in Banaras, the film has a lot of sequences at the Ghats where Parkour; a form of physical activity to reach from one distance to another in the quickest and most efficient way would be useful. Such sequences are never easy to shoot and require skills and director Manish Tiwary wanted Prateik to fit in the character to the tee. Prateik is also giving all what it takes to be a perfect Banarasi boy in love.
By the looks of it, the movie is already garnering a lot of attention and is one to be watched out for. Directed by Manish Tiwary of Dil Dosi Etc fame and Produced by Shailesh Singh and Dhaval Gada, this modern adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Issaq is slated to release on 26th July 2013.
