In the mood for love
Prateik and rumoured girlfriend Amy Jackson holiday in Goa; might bring in the New Year there as well
Prateik could not have asked for a better backdrop than the beaches of Goa to spend some private time with rumoured girlfriend Amy Jackson and he is making the most of it. The actor who is a huge fan of electronic dance music is there to attend the Sunburn music festival.
And Amy is grooving to the music with him. Says a source, "Prateik had always planned to come to Sunburn, and then he thought there couldn't be a better place to take Amy along. There is constant media attention in Mumbai and he wanted to get away for a bit."
We hear that he surprised her with tickets for the show and they were off on a flight on Sunday, two days before the festival. Adds an eyewitness, "On the flight, she kept talking and he kept listening. He seemed very patient and calm." We guess love does that to you, since we hear Prateik also accompanied her for some street shopping.
Adds the source, "They went around the Candolim beach and indulged in some shopping as well." Interestingly, he is apparently not just keen on listening to the music, but also meeting some of the big artistes at the festival including Skazi.
Concludes the source, "Amy is a huge music buff as well, so their tastes obviously match. They are hoping to hang around till the end of the fest." If all goes as per plan, Prateik may extend this trip to spend New Year as well with Amy in Goa.
The two, however, missed an opportunity to tour the Taj Mahal together due to bad weather conditions
Prateik wanted to show his sweetheart Amy Jackson the iconic monument of love, Taj Mahal. However, the Weather Gods played spoilsports. The co-stars became extremely close while shooting for Gautham Menon's next, the remake of a South film.
A source from the crew informs, "Both, Prateik and Amy got very excited when they heard that the music of the film was going to be launched at Taj Mahal, one of the most beautiful and romantic destinations in the world that symbolises romance. The actors had requested the makers if they could stay back and have a guided tour of the monument. Both had not visited the Taj before and this was an ideal opportunity."
But unfortunately due to the fog in Delhi and Agra, the two reached the spot quite late.
Says a source, "Due to the fog and bad weather conditions they couldn't make it to the launch on time. When they reached there, the entry to Taj Mahal was just about closing but the authorities were very supportive and let them go in, but for very little time. Consequently, Prateik couldn't show Amy the entire place properly."
Vijay Singh of Fox Star Studios says, "The entire young brigade including Prateik and Amy wanted to take the tour but due to weather conditions we got delayed. We shall do it another time."
Better luck next time, then.
