Prateik, who was seen recently in Anubhav Sinha's Mulk, has bagged another important film.

The son of film star-turned-politician Raj Babbar and the late actress Smita Patil has been signed on for Dangal (2016) director Nitesh Tiwari's next.

The project is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Fox Star Studios. Prateik will be playing a negative role in the film.

Set on an engineering college campus, the as yet untitled film is said to be a student drama with a social message about embracing success and failure with equanimity.

Since it is a college film, Prateik and the other members of the cast will be seen playing sports. The actor has apparently already begun working on his basketball and baseball.

The film is likely to go on the floors in November this year with the makers targeting an August release next year.

Prateik has had a good 2018 so far with Baaghi 2 becoming a hit and Mulk getting critical acclaim. The actor is currently shooting for Mahesh Manjrekar’s Devdas Thakur.
