I’ve learnt to be wiser, stronger, says Prateik

Mumbai, Nov 28 (IANS) Actor Prateik Babbar, who turned 30 on Monday, says he has learnt to be stronger and wiser with age.

Prateik told IANS: “I have matured a lot as a person. I have started accepting a lot of things. I have learnt to accept and adjust with things and be happy with what I have. I had my ups and downs, and I have done many mistakes, so I am just learning from them. I have learnt to be wiser and stronger.”

The son of late actress Smita Patil and actor-politician Raj Babbar started his acting career with “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na” in 2008 and went on to do films like “Dhobi Ghat” and “Ekk Deewana Tha”.

He said: “I know it’s a very symbolic day when you turn 30. Life just begins at this age for most of the people. Yes, it’s symbolic. So, I would like my family to be around more than anything else.”

“I don’t celebrate as such. The maximum I do is spend time with my family…my mother’s sister and my grand-parents. Most of my birthdays are very quiet,” he said.
