If you follow Prateik Babbar on Instagram, you must be knowing how much he misses his mother, Smita Patil. The legendary actress passed away on December 13, 1986, at the age of 31 due to childbirth complications just two weeks after giving birth to Prateik. Now, as the Babbar and Patil family will celebrate Smita's 35th death anniversary in December this year, Prateik decided to immortalise his mother.
The Chhichhore got his mother Smita's name inked on his chest. The tattoo read, "Smita 1955- (infinity symbol)" Sharing the picture, Prateik wrote, "inked my mother’s name on my heart.. smita #4ever 1955 - " Prateik's half-brother Aarya Babbar and brother-in-law Annup Sonii showered love. Mrunal Thakur, Shveta Salve and others dropped in a comment too.
