For the uninitiated, Prateik was raised by his late grandparents, Shivajirao Girdhar Patil and Vidyatai Patil from his maternal side after his mother, Smita Patil had passed away quite early in life at the age of 31 due to childbirth complications. It was quite tough for the actor to cope-up with the loss of his mother but his grandparents had played a crucial part in his upbringing and are the reason why he’s too close to them. However, as we all know that his grandmother, late Vidyatai Patil was too close to him and a glimpse of which we had witnessed on March 7, 2020, when he had posted a picture with his grandmother on Instagram. Along with the photo, he had written a small note that could be read as “flashback the only way i remember her.. the only way i want to.. smiling.. 5 years ago today.. with every breath.. i miss you #maa we are infinite rest in power my #queen.” Take a look.
Prateik was devastated after losing his grandmother and speaking about the same in an interview with the Times of India, Prateik had stated, “The whole process of losing her was terribly painful. She has given me immense love and all I wanted to do was make her proud, and make her part of my success. I couldn't live up to it and that made me very angry. I was full of self-pity and was dodged with questions about my life. I wondered why people liked me. Was it because my mother had died? Did they feel bad for me? Maybe, they liked me for all these reasons and not because I was a good actor. All those thoughts tore me apart. After my grandmom passed away, I realised how everything in the past was pretty much my fault, and I had got it all wrong. But over time, I have made peace with myself and all those thoughts are behind me now. I only have gratitude for my parents and others around me."
