    Filmstars, celebrities keep pouring in Agra off and on for either movie shootings or promoting their serials.

Though there are some speculations that the movie name is Prem Katha but the actor states that it is still untitled. It is a love story which has been made in Tamil and Telugu. Now it is being going to remake in Hindi with an actress of British origin, Emma Jackson. Gautam Menon is directing the movie.

    Speaking about his first movie, Jaane tu Ya Jaane Na in which he did a small cameo, Prateik says, “Though it was a cameo but that role garnered me huge popularity amongst youngsters”. Then came Kiran Rao’s Dhobi Ghat again a Aamir Khan Productions in which he was cast in leading role. He says, “ I am lucky to work with Aamir Khan is first two movies of my career with him. He is an inspiration. As far as Dhobhi Ghaat is concerned it proved to be a big break in my career and the story started on the sets of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Kiran Rao noticed me on the sets of the movie and there only she discussed about her upcoming project. I am lucky to have support of Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan. They are really very encouraging. I hope I get opportunities to work with them in the future.”

The best thing about the city is Taj Mahal. It’s compelling beauty keeps one coming again and again to the city. Its beauty is at its best.Other good thing about the city is Red Fort.
