Biopic on my mother should be called 'Ek-Thi-Smita': Prateik Babbar
Regarded as one of the finest actors in Hindi and Marathi cinema, Patil acted in over 80 films in her career that spanned over a decade.
Prateik is currently busy promoting his upcoming film "Mulk".
I am excited about biopic on my mother, says Prateik
"People have talked about a biopic on my mother. I am excited about it. I would love to have a biopic made on her," Prateik said.
"I am ok with it. Don't know if my family is. I am not the only one to give a green signal to it," the actor said when asked whether there were any apprehensions in telling the story.
Smita died from childbirth complications at the age of 31
Patil, who was married to Raj Babbar, passed away in 1986 at the age of 31, barely 2 weeks after giving birth to Prateik due to some complications.
"I miss her a lot even today. I have seen all her films, but I loved her the most in 'Bhumika'," the 31-year-old actor said.
Prateik's upcoming film "Mulk" is set to release on August 3.
