Prateik Babbar is enjoying the frenetic pace that comes with juggling films and web shows. Before he makes his presence felt on the big screen with Mumbai Saga, the actor will be seen headlining Chakravyuh — An Inspector Virkar Crime Thriller. The MX Player series, backed by Applause Entertainment and based on Piyush Jha’s book Anti-Social Network, sees Babbar’s cop character investigate the murder of a college student.
The actor says he had to start from scratch for his first portrayal of an on-screen cop. “My character Virkar is fit, beefed up and has the strength to run kilometres as he chases wrongdoers. [Before facing the camera], I had to imbibe some of his agility. So, I started running 10 kilometres every day, besides following my regular fitness regime,” he says.
