This time not in any of his films but for the sport that he has been passionate about. Prateik Babbar. Recently earned a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The talented actor who has a decade-long experience in the field of acting talks about the belief that he has kept on learning new things.

 

In an exclusive with a publication, actor Prateik Babbar says,

 

“It’s always so exciting and challenging to learn something new, especially when it’s a sport, and you start from scratch. I have been a huge fan of the sport and I’ve been watching it for years,” Babbar says. Prateik began the sport in the yeaer 2019 and has been very progressive since the time he has taken up this sport.

The Four More Shots Please is elated with “evident and inevitable” progress. As he has been training regularly for about four years.

 

“MMA gives me a sense of calm and purpose when I feel like I am a little scattered in life. When I feel like I don’t have much going on. If there’s a lull period in my life, MMA gives me balance. I think it is fuel for my soul. This is something I want to do for the rest of my life,” Babbar explains.

 

Prateik owes this hardwork to his sensei where he adds,

 

“One of my icons is definitely my coach and my sensei — Rohit Nair. I owe my entire martial arts journey to him. Another icon is Gordon Ryan. No one can beat him. He is one of my icons.”

 

After the blue belt, the actor aspires for the black belt.

 

“The ultimate goal is to become a black belt holder. It takes a really long time to get a black belt. People who start training at the age of four and five get their black belts at 20 and 30.”

 

On the work front, Babbar shares that along with acting. He is now open to dabbling into writing and directing as well.
