'I take full responsibility for my actions'
Mumbai: After his promising debut in the 2008 film Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na, Prateik Babbar featured in the critically acclaimed film Dhobi Ghaat.
The actor starred in more films but he blames his addiction to drugs for his slow career and he takes full responsibility for his actions.
The son of actor-politician Raj Babbar and late actor Smita Patil has battled substance abuse.
He was away from the big screen for three years and made an impressive comeback with Baaghi 2 in 2018.
Asked if he blames drug abuse for his slow career, Prateik said: "Yes, I take full responsibility for my actions and blame myself and unfortunate circumstances together."
The actor, 31, has completed a decade in the industry and he calls it a roller-coaster ride.
"I feel this decade of my journey in this industry has been one hell of a roller-coaster ride," he said.
He further added saying, "I do not regret anything but one thing, that my grandparents were unable to see all the good in my life at this point of my life. I believe regrets are a burden and having them would only drag them down."
He is now gearing up to play an anti-hero in director Nitesh Tiwari's next starring alongside Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput.
