Well-known actor Pankaj Tripathi is one of the versatile actors in Bollywood. He has essayed versatile roles in movies like Stree, Gurgaon, Ludo, Luka Chupi and web series Mirzapur. Now, Tripathi is gearing up for his forthcoming movie Sherdil: The Pilibhit Story which is all set to hit theatres on June 24. The movie presents an insightful story about the adverse effects of urbanisation, man-animal conflicts and poverty leading to a bizarre practice in a village that resides on the edge of a forest.
Recently, in a media chat, the actor talked about Sherdil, his two-decade long journey in Bollywood and how he has reached the saturation point. The actor revealed, “It has been quite an interesting journey. I remember clearly how I did a few roles initially where I was the face but the voice was not mine, my part was edited out, and then I was a small part of large films. My journey is proof that if you work hard and consistently keep working on your craft, your journey will bear fruits. Sherdil is that fruit for me. It tells an important story about man and his relationship with nature, and the best part of it all is that it is a satirical film.”
Speaking about the saturation point in his career after back-to-back movies and shows, the actor revealed, “I know that I am almost at the saturation point. I plan to work a little less in the coming days. I am getting a feeling that I should do less work. I will try that for a year or so. If it doesn’t work, then I’ll be back to doing what I do now.”
Tripathi also told that going forward, he wants to be a part of projects that give him satisfaction as an actor.
