It seems like music maestro AR Rahman’s good luck is rubbing off on to Prateik too.How else would you explain the actor’s reluctance to part with Rahman’s film trophy, insisting that it’s a good-luck charm for him?
The story goes like this: during Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008), Prateik had gone on to win a number of Best Newcomer awards. But since Rahman wasn’t present at the dos to receive his own trophies, and Aamir doesn’t attend award functions on principle, Prateik ended up collecting all their trophies.
“Later, of course, he handed them over to the rightful winners. Though, he didn’t manage to give Rahman one of his awards, because they didn’t meet after the film released,” says the insider from the entourage.
On Wednesday, when the Dhobi Ghat (2010) actor met Rahman at the Taj Mahal, Agra, for the music release function of Ek Deewana Tha, he was carrying the trophy with him. But even before Prateik handed over the trophy to Rahman, the actor told the maestro that his trophy was a go…
