Pankaj Tripathi’s journey from theatre to the big screen
Some of the finest actors in Bollywood are a gift from India’s modern theatre and we are more than grateful for the stage that has produced some of the finest and astonishing talent of the industry. The one and only Pankaj Tripathi, who has created a buzz in Bollywood with his acting chops and absolute character portrayals was always intrigued by theatre arts.
“One day, I just went to Patna and started watching theatre. And from watching plays regularly, I went on to participating in them as well. Initially, it just started out as a hobby. I used to be a very sincere audience member. For two years, I watched all the theatre and cultural shows in Patna.” – said Pankaj Tripathi on an interview. His entire career took a U-turn and steered in the forward direction ever since he acted in “Gangs of Wasseypur” (2012). Previously, he had also debuted in minor roles in Omkara and Run, but went unnoticed and then Gangs of Wasseypur shone a light on him that made him a star in all of Bollywood, overnight!
These days, our latest heart throb Pankaj Tripathi is totally nailing every character he is offered, to the tee, and we just can’t afford to miss any of his performances! Even on the digital platforms and on the web, with all the negativity he’s displaying in Mirzapur and Sacred Games, he has taking all of us by shock. He’s now an all-time favourite amongst the prominent directors and they respect him for his dialogue- delivery skills and on-screen dedication. Fans are eagerly waiting for the second season of Mirzapur as well as Sacred Games, and the entire country is waiting for the next big project that Pankaj Tripathi will join and bring to life.
