Prateik becomes a guide to grandma in VaranasiMumbai - Taking out time from his busy schedule, talented actor Prateik Babbar has become a guide to his maternal grandmother Vidyatai Patil and accompanied her for all the sightseeing in the temple town of Varanasi. The young star, who is presently shooting in Uttar Pradesh for Manish Tiwarys directorial venture Issaq, has taken his grandmother along with him as she wanted to visit the temple town. The duo has reportedly also taken a holy dip in the Ganga. "It was amazing shooting in Benares, especially in the Ganga, as well as having grandma around. It was my first time and I didn't know that the water would be so cold. I was freezing as we were shooting for hours in the running current of the river," Prateik said in a statement. A source said, "The actor is extremely close to his maternal family and has the highest regard for his grandmother. It was endearing to see him escort her around Benares to soak in the sights of the city". Issaq is based on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
