Pankaj Tripathi finally stepped out of his isolation at his residence in Madh Island to resume work.
“I went out for the first time after the lockdown to do the dubbing for Mirzapur 2. The work atmosphere felt very strange, Everyone was in masks, no hugs no warm greeting after so many months. Everyone is scared,” says Pankaj who will next be seen as Janhvi Kapoor’s father in Netflix’s Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl.
Pankaj is proud of the way Mirzapur has turned out. “The sequel is sharper much more polished than the first part. I don’t know when it will be streamed. But there is a lot of interest in the series.”
Pankaj likes to keep himself away from social media. “It is a waste of time and so much negativity is spread.I’d rather take long walks outside my house than spend time on the phone. There are just 15 families staying closeby to where I live. And long stretches of solitude to explore.”
