Pankaj Tripathi marks his birthday today and what more could he ask for when he himself says in an interview with E Times that today a 40 something person knows about him, 70 year olds love him and even the teenagers find him entertaining. Three generations of audiences love him… and doesn’t that make him a star already. Pankaj Tripathi gets into a conversation exclusively with E Times today and speaks his heart out.
The actor has just returned from a shoot in Leh and as he speaks to the portal, he pointed out that while other actors are waiting for their projects to kickstart, he has had as many as six projects released amidst the pandemic. Speaking about the same he calls himself ‘lockdown ka hero.’ Excerpts from the interview, “I am the only actor to have had so many releases during the lockdown! Main lockdown ka hero hoon (I am a hero of the lockdown). Earlier, for promotions, we would have to hop from one city to another–now that has ended. And it makes sense, we promote a film from our home; you watch it from yours (laughs).”
He’s truly indeed a lockdown ka hero – right from Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Ludo, Kaagaz and the much recently released Mimi – the actor has blown our minds time and again. In the interview he has further even spoken about his struggling days where he would leave his house at 12 pm and do the rounds of Andheri for auditions. He would go without carrying a bottle of water and neither would he buy a bottle. He recounts the time and chuckles saying he didn’t even take care of himself.
Birthday boy Pankaj Tripathi surely has no regrets. He even confirms he is booked till 2022. He’s surely someone to get in inspired from.
