A self-confessed sports fanatic, Prateik feels sports is equally entertaining as films
He points out, “If not the big screen, I would have picked sports as a career choice.”
The actor says he absolutely loves playing football in the present weather. “I played football as a kid. There were a lot of matches on Juhu beach then. I have played football in the rains with random children. Wish I could do all that again.”
Being glued to the TV during the recent Euro 2012, Prateik rues over the fact that India doesn’t have an international soccer team. He adds, “We don’t have the facilities and the government doesn’t support international football in our country, which is really sad. But Bhaichung Bhutia is doing a lot and hopefully, in a few year’s time we should have a team.”
Sometime back there was buzz that Prateik has joined the Salgaocar Sports Club, the football club in Vasco, Goa. Ask the young actor about it and he says, “There’s nothing official but it’s true to a certain extent. We had shot in the grounds for Dum Maaro Dum, so they said we could come and play whenever we wanted. Like a friendly thing.” So will we see him working the balls there? “Bilkul, jab bhi Goa jaaonga,” he adds with a smile.

Powerful performances apart, The Reluctant Fundamentalist underwhelms. Tis best to watch this one with lowered expectations
