For his next film Prateik Babbar is starring opposite some of the heavy hitters of the film industry. Not only does he have to work with Manoj Bajpayee, and Saif Ali Khan but he also has to do some scenes with Mr Amitibh Bachchan. A bit nerve wracking even for the most accomplished actor. So what does director Prakash Jha tell Prateik to do if he gets confused or nervous on set? Find out in this cute behind the scenes video!
Aarkakshan is set to hit theaters on August 12th. Though some of the promos and behind the scenes looks have been light the story of the film is most definitely a drama
Aarakshan is the story of Prabhakar Anand (Amitabh Bachchan), the legendary idealistic principal of a college that he has single-handedly turned into the state’s best. It is the story of his loyal disciple, Deepak Kumar (Saif Ali Khan) who will do anything for his Sir. Of Deepak’s love for Prabhakar’s daughter, Poorbi (Deepika Padukone), of his friendship with Sushant (Prateik). It is the story of their love, their lively friendship, their zest for life, and of their dreams for the future.
Centered on one of the most controversial issues of recent years, with the Supreme Court’s order on reservations, the story suddenly becomes a rollercoaster ride of high drama, conflict, and rebellion, which tests their love and friendship for one another, and their loyalty to Prabhakar Anand.
