Vikas took to his Instagram and shared, “I’ve admired Pratiek Babbar since I saw Dhobi Ghat by Kiran Rao. His presence was amazing & as we saw him picking new characters, | knew that at one point that I have to work with him. His choices of roles has been insanely creative from Cobalt Blue to Mulk. And when I was writing the character of Shiva based on my adorable cab driver in Bangladesh…… I knew it in my heart that Prateik could do so much justice to his character”.
Speaking of same Prateik shared, “It’s an extremely encouraging & gratifying feeling to be a filmmaker’s number one choice. I m honoured and grateful to vikas ji for the opportunity.. for putting his trust & belief in me as a performer.. i mean im shooting a movie with “the shabana azmi” & “the vikas khanna”.. i guess i must’ve done something right”.
Prateik Patil Babbar and Shabana Azmi will be seen in Imaginary Rain, directed by ‘Michelin Star’ chef and filmmaker Vikas Khanna. The latter had opened about the film saying, “Shiva is a cab driver that Prerna (Shabana ji) hires to travel from Delhi to Amritsar. It’s a very sensitive yet layered role where he redefines the subtle nuances of Indian culture to Shabana ji.”
