If sources are to be believed, the actor is losing out some extremely good films since he is quoting too high. It's being said that though Prateik was reportedly approached for Shoojit Sircar's Second Time Lucky and Tigmanshu Dhulia's Milan Talkies, he asked for a huge amount. The producers thought that Prateik is yet to prove himself and so were not sure if they would recover the money if they paid him that much.
As per sources, Prateik does not get into the details of finance and money. It is apparently his manager who decides how much fees he must quote from the producers.
