Pratiek Babbar celebrated his late mother Smita Patil’s 58th birth anniversary Thursday with an NGO in Mumbai. The actress died in 1986 after having complications during child birth.
“I don’t know what she (Smita Patil) was and how she was, but I have heard a lot about her from people. She was a wonderful person, very good at heart,” said Prateik, who cut a cake in her memory.
“I am trying to be like her by coming here (at the NGO) and meeting the kids as she used to. I am just trying to be as nice as a person,” the 26-year-old said, adding “These kind of things make people happy and somewhere these make you happy as well.”
“I am proud to be their child. It is very inspiring for me. I am inspired by my mom and dad,” he added.
