New Delhi: Prateik seems to be preparing very hard for his role in ‘Issaq’ -- he has learnt fire dance and parkour to play a Banarasi boy.

After taking diction classes and physical training to get the correct nuances to play a Banarasi lad, Prateik trained in fire dance and parkour to be able to do his stunt sequences perfectly, said a source.

The film directed by Manish Tiwary of ‘Dil Dosti Etc’ fame is the modern adaptation of Shakespeare`s "Romeo and Juliet". It is yet to go on floors, but it will be shot entirely in Banaras. It is produced by Shailesh Singh and Dhaval Gada.
