Pankaj Tripathi has been keeping busy and for all the right reasons. The talented actor, who won a National Award for his performance in Newton, has been running from one shooting schedule to the other and riding high on the laurels he is receiving for his latest achievement. 2018 has been a special year for Pankaj and this winning streak is not going to end any time soon as he has 8 projects that will be releasing this year.
Angrezi Mein Kehete Hain released on 18th May 2018, to many positive reviews. Pankaj’s role in the film, although small, has been very well received by the audience and critics alike. Along with the Sanjay Mishra starring romantic comedy, Tripathi had another release lined up on the same day. His Punjabi debut film, Harjeeta released along with Angrezi Mein Kehete Hain, which saw him playing the character of Indian hockey protégé, Harjeet Singh’s coach. Following this, Pankaj will also make a debut with Tamil superstar, Rajnikanth in the much awaited film, Kaala. He will also be seen in the Aman Kaushik directed horror comedy, Stree, with Rajkumar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor as well as Anubhav Sinha’s political satire, Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai, with an ensemble cast that includes Saurabh Shukla, Vinay Pathak, Pawan Malhotra, Richa Chadha, Kumud Mishra, Divya Dutta, Manoj Pawha, Dilip Prabhavalkar and Prateik Babbar to name a few. The Masaan actor is also one of the main characters of the upcoming romantic crime drama, Phamous.
If you think the silver screen is going to be lit with Pankaj’s phenomenal performances, the digital space isn’t too far behind. Pankaj has 2 web series that are releasing this year; Farhan Akhtar’s crime drama Mirzapur with Ali Fazal and Shweta Tripathi and the newly announced Indian remake of the BBC series, Criminal Justice.
It sure is one hell of a year for Pankaj and we cannot wait to see his magic come alive on screen!
