Pratheek has also worked as an editor for films like 777 Charlie, the recent blockbuster Kantara and Hero. He has to his credit the pride of being the director of photographer and editor of the iconic Kannada feature film Gandhadagudi, featuring the late Puneeth Rajkumar which will release this month. Gandhadagudi has been one of the most challenging yet highly inspiring projects for Prateek, as bringing into life Appu sir's dream of making Karnataka's ecstatic wildlife and nature recognized among people, drove the entire team to work harder. Shooting wildlife comes with its own challenges like waiting for natural light and animals for long hours, however, Puneeth sir's involvement, support and presence throughout the shoots was a motivational force for the team to preserve.
