Pankaj Tripathi To Spring One More Surprise On His Fans This Year



Pankaj Tripathy

 2020  has been a specially rewarding year  for Pankaj Tripathi . During the  year the versatile actor got a chance to prove his rocksolid mettle in  characters and films as  varied as Ludo, Mirzapur and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil.

But the best, says  Pankaj, is yet to come. “The Second Season  of  Criminal Justice  will stream on Disney-Hotstar  from  December 25. I love my character  of  the lawyer Madhav Mishra. He is  a common  workingclass man, your Everyman, a lawyer  whose inherent sense of selfworth and  dignity in spite of handing seedy  cases,keep him from derailing  from his moral track.”

Pankaj says it is  a series that allows him the freedom to  behave fully in character. “In this  role I behave  in character. I don’t have to act all the time for the camera. Hamare  yahan aaj bhi cheehkne chliaane  ko acha acting kehte hain. Zyaadatar waise roles ke  liye awards milte hain. (We consider  screaming shouting  to be good acting and give awards to such  performances).In Criminal Justice I have  remained  with the  character throughout.  I see Madhav Mishra  as  an ambitious idealistic very  quiet smalltowner  trapped in the urban jungle.”

 Pankaj  is delighted  to have  huge talent surrounding him in Criminal  Justice.  “My immediate  co-star Anupriya  Goenka is  a fine actress.This time  we’ve some really talented actors Ashish Vidyarthiji  and Deepti  Navalji added to the cast.So I’d say the second season  of Criminal  Justice is much more layered  and  intriguing than the first.”

Pankaj is  all praise for the writing in Criminal Justice by Apurva Asrani.

Sameer Nair, CEO  of Applause Entertainment ( the  producers  of Criminal Justice)  agrees with Pankaj Tripathi. “We take the storytelling and performances up several notches in Season 2  of Criminal Justice.It’s an intense and disturbing drama, quite unlike our lighter, frothier shows or our violent, action oriented ones or a financial human drama like Scam 1992. I love that we are able to create such a wide variety of content by collaborating with such distinctive creators, writers, directors and talent.”
