Prateik plans to join Salgaocar Sports Club

Mumbai: Actor Prateik Babbar has developed a fondness for Goa and is eager to join the Salgaocar Sports Club, one of the leading football clubs in the tourist state.

Making inquires to finalise his decision, the 24-year-old son of late actress Smita Patil is in the process of setting up his second home in the tiny neighbouring state.

The actor is in talks with a broker to buy a house in North Goa, and is all set to join the elite club next.

Sources close to the actor said that before shooting for Rohan Sippy`s `Dum Maaro Dum`, Prateik had trained at the football club in Vasco for three months.

At a time when other Bollywood actors are signing up as fans of Chelsea and Manchester United, Prateik`s plans to join Salgaocar came as a surprise, they said.
