Ask Prateik what attracted him to do EKK DEEWANA THA after being a part of cream projects and he says, ''The most amazing part about EKK DEEWANA THA is that it is not larger-than-life highly glamorous film. The USP of this film is its down-to-earth treatment. I was blown away by the story and the simplicity of the romance. And I am quite proud to be part of this film.''

As remakes of south films is the in-thing in Bollywood today and EKK DEEWANA THA is also a remake of Tamil and Telugu films, Prateik is of the opinion that remakes are a safe bet for filmmakers. ''It's safe aspect. But only when films are appreciated,'' says the 25-year old actor.

However, the Hindi remake has a different ending. Says Prateik, ''It's a pretty much frame-to-frame copy. The only change is the ending. While Tamil had a sad ending; Telugu had a happy ending, Hindi remake's ending is a secret, but I had to bring my own instincts and pull it in my own style.''

Also starring Amy Jackson, EKK DEEWANA THA releases today in cinemas worldwide.
