Pankaj Tripathi has been a part of showbiz for more than 15 years now. He had begun that journey with side roles in films like Apaharan, Omkara, Raavan and Aakrosh. It was with his stint as Sultan Qureshi in Gangs Of Wasseypur that he came into notice, but still it took him a few years and multiple amazing performances in films like Fukrey, Masaan, Newton and Bareilly Ki Barfi to get his due.
Today, it’s hard to even imagine films without him, and the actor now has a choc-a-bloc schedule for the next few years. Today is this amazing talent’s birthday and as Pankaj turns a year older, wishes are pouring in from across the world and also from within the industry for the actor.
Manoj Bajpayee also took to Twitter to share some pics from last night’s celebration with the actor and another one of their friends, Vineet Kumar. It seems like Pankaj Tripathi hosted Bajpayee and others for dinner.
As he shared some tinted photos of himself with Pankaj, Manoj Bajpayee wrote, “An evening with my old time senior & friend @VineetK00989283 (Vineet) and our dear @TripathiPankaj at the latter’s (Pankaj’s) place for fish & rice!! What great hosts Pankaj and Mridula are!! फिर जल्दी मिलना होगा मीट भात के लिए !!”
The two talents have worked together in Gangs Of Wasseypur earlier and are considered two of the most talented actors in the Hindi film industry today. On the work front, Pankaj Tripathi has Kabir Khan’s ’83 with Ranveer Singh and Bachchan Pandey with Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon in the pipeline. He also is about to start shooting for OMG- Oh My God! 2 with Yami Gautam and Akshay. Meanwhile, Manoj Bajpayee was recently seen in Rensil D’Silva’s Dial 100 with Neena Gupta and Sakshi Tanwar.
