Babbar made his acting debut in the Aamir Khan production, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na alongside Imran Khan and Genelia D'Souza. His portrayal of the annoying, attention-seeking brother of Genelia's character won him critical appreciation as well as numerous awards. At the 54th Filmfare Awards, Babbar received a Special Jury certificate, as well as nominations for Best Male Debut and Best Supporting Actor. The film went on to become a major commercial success.
Following this initial success, he appeared in films which earned him little recognition. In 2011, Babbar appeared in four films, the first of which was Kiran Rao's Dhobi Ghaat, which opened to positive reviews at film festivals worldwide. Babbar also featured in the action-thriller Dum Maro Dum alongside Abhishek Bachchan and Rana Daggubati, and in the Prakash Jha-directed social drama Aarakshan with Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. Also, in 2011, he acted opposite Kalki Koechlin in My Friend Pinto. His subsequent films include Ekk Deewana Tha and Issaq, both of which underperformed at the box office. He is currently shooting for Saurav Chakraborty's Bengali film titled Auroni Taukhon with Paoli Dam.
Babbar was born on November 28, 1986 and is the son of late actress Smita Patil and actor-politician Raj Babbar. His mother died due to complications in child birth after Prateik was born. He has said that he had a strained relationship with his father while growing up, as he was "always busy with his other family", but stated that he had later reconciled with him. Babbar's step-mother is actress Nadira Babbar and his step-siblings are Arya Babbar and Juhi Babbar, who are also actors.
