Pratik Gandhi's Raavan Leela will release on October 1.
Gujarati actor Pratik Gandhi had a rough start in the film industry. He made his debut with the English film Yours Emotionally back in 2006 but went unnoticed. Later, he made his Gujarati film debut in 2014 with Bey Yaar. However, he could not pick films for two more years after that. All the while, the actor continued working on plays but since his second Gujarati film, Wrong Side Raju, Pratik became a popular star in the Gujarati film industry.
The actor worked in movies like Love Ni Bhavai, Ventilator, Dhunki, Gujarat 11 and Luv No Love Storys, all of which were acclaimed.
Meanwhile, the actor made his Hindi film debut with Mitron and later, LoveYatri. However, he was not recognized till his web series Scam 1992, which was released in 2020. With that series, Pratik became an overnight star.
2021 began with Pratik working in another series titled Vitthal Teedi. The actor was appreciated for the series as much as Scam 1992, if not more. He later appeared on Star vs Food alongside Bollywood celebs like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor.
Currently, the actor has three confirmed projects in his kitty with many more waiting to go on floors. He is currently waiting for Raavan Leela release, which will be followed by his other projects.
Here's looking at the upcoming projects of the OTT star:
Raavan Leela (Bhavai) - Theatrical release
Pratik Gandhi plays the lead role of Raavan in the upcoming film Raavan Leela (Bhavai). He is seen as the character of Raja Ram Joshi, who initially hoped to play Ram in the Ram-Leela held in his village. However, his character constantly points out flaws in the story, thus building up to 'Raavan Leela'.
Directed by Hardik Gajjar, the movie also stars Aindrita Ray, Ankur Bhatia, Abhimanyu Singh, Gopal Singh, Rajesh Sharma, Rajendra Gupta and Anil Rastogi in pivotal roles. Pratik's real-life wife Bhamini Oza also has a cameo appearance in the film, which is produced by Pen Studios.
