Prateik Babbar prefers to stay away from limelight

Mumbai: Two-film-old Prateik feels that communicating through his characters is much better than boasting about what all he has done.

"Prateik has decided that he`ll speak through his characters, as it is his work that he is most passionate about, and it is that aspect that he wants to focus on," said a source.

The 24-year-old made his debut with Aamir Khan`s production venture ‘Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Naa’ and was last seen in ‘Dhobi Ghat’. Prateik will now be seen in Rohan Sippy`s ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ which releases Friday.

"Prateik is an extremely shy boy, if he`s alone with someone, and has the time to bond, you`ll see him talking nineteen to the dozen, but as a person he needs time to break the ice, and thus he is not very forthcoming with the media," the source added.
