“I Have Fought The Demons Of Substance Abuse”: Prateik Babbar

Actor Prateik Babbar, in an interview with IANS, revealed that he has “battled the demons of substance abuse”, and that he intends to write a book about the struggles he has faced. 


The Ek Deewana Tha actor said that he has been staying away from drugs and alcohol for over a year now. “There was a part of my life that people didn’t know about. All these years, people, fans and admirers saw me in a certain way as a good actor, a happy guy. But that wasn’t the case. I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t being good to myself. I was a heavy addict. It was a huge problem,” he declared, adding, “I want to tell them this happened to me and I am not perfect.”

Prateik Babbar marked his Bollywood debut with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na in 2008 and was seen in movies like Dhobi Ghat, Dum Maaro Dum. The actor will be marking his Bengali debut with the movie Auroni Tuakhon. His last release was the 2013 romantic drama Isaaq, in which he was seen along-side Amyra Dastur.
