Prateik is all set to spend his Valentine's Day with his co-star Amy Jackson to promote his forthcoming film "Ek Deewana Tha", which will see the young actor in a romantic hero's role for the first time, and is also planning to try his luck with his co-star yet again.
"I think the only plan that has been given to me is to promote my film. So, I am working but lucky, I am working with a pretty girl," Prateik told IANS and added: "Yes, since we are together on Valentine's Day, maybe I can try my luck once again."
There has been speculation about Prateik and Amy's off-screen relationship but the former said: "We are extremely close and fond of each other but we are not in a relationship."
Written and directed by Gautham Menon, the film "Ek Deewana Tha" is a Hindi remake of the filmmaker's Tamil movie "Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa". The film is scheduled for a Feb 17 release.
The two first met on the sets of "Ek Deewana Tha" and it was Amy who broke the ice in their first meeting.
"First meeting was awkward. I am a shy guy when it comes to meeting anyone. I take time to open up. She is like all you girls, so talkative and she broke the ice," he said.
