Actor Prateik Babbar, who was recently seen in Rohan Sippy's, Dum Maaro Dum, has been given a 'special appearance' tag in the credits, even though he had a sizeable role in the film. The reason being that Prateik only prefers lead roles in the films.
The actor, who did a cameo in the film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and played the lead in the film Dhobi Ghat from now on will only accept films that feature him in the lead roles. Dum Maaro Dum, was a special consideration from the Babbar boy, as this was already in his prior commitment list. Therefore, Prateik and his career manager insisted on crediting his part as 'special appearance'.
Informed Sippy to Mid Day, “It wasn't Prateik who asked for the special appearance tag. It was Prateik's aunt. I'm happy to have worked with Prateik. My father had worked with his mother. I see the same imploring, expressive eyes. You feel like protecting that boy. What does he know or care about credit protocol?"
Prateik Babbar, further will be seen playing a lead role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's My Friend Pinto and Gautham Menon's upcoming untitled flick.
