Don't mind playing gay characters: Prateik Babbar

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Actor Prateik Babbar, who recently played a gay character in one of his plays, says he would like to essay a gay character in a film as well.

Prateik told IANS: "In my first play, I played a gay character and for me as an actor, it was very challenging. But I feel I have arrived to a very special place as an actor. I didn't have any inhibitions about it."

Would he be comfortable playing a gay character in a film?

He said: "Absolutely, I would love to play a gay character on screen but it also depends a lot on the story and how it's written. I don't mind playing a gay character in a film."

He recently did a play titled "Six", based on "A Midnight Clear" by L.B. Hamilton. It revolves around two former gay lovers.

Prateik also feels theatre is very rejuvenating.

He said: "I am doing theatre and I feel it's very rejuvenating. There is just one take to glory and there is no take two. I enjoy the process of doing theatres and it's a very satisfying experience."

His past few films, including "Ekk Deewana Tha", didn't work at the box office, and he has learned a lot from his failure.

"You like when people appreciate your work. But in the recent past, my films didn't work and it has happened to me more than once. So, I have learned a lot from my failure. The good thing is I have started focusing on the right things. For me, it's all about acting and not about being popular," the 30-year-old said.
