National award winning actor Pankaj Tripathi has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Vikas Bahl’s upcoming film Super 30, alongside Hrithik Roshan.

Tripathi, who has shared screen space with Roshan in Dharma Productions’ Agneepath, will be again seen working with the actor. If sources are to go by, the Masaan actor will be once again essaying the role of Hrithik’s nemesis in Super 30.

Confirming about his character in the film, an excited Pankaj said, “My character in ‘Super 30’ is negative with a very quirky sense of humour. The character has a lot of spontaneity and it was a lot of fun playing him due to that very spontaneity. Working with Hrithik is always a great experience because he is a brilliant actor and an equally superb human being. And owing to the fact that I know Hrithik and we have worked together in the past there’s a comfort level that we share. So it’s always an enjoyable experience working with him.”

Tripathi will be making a comeback to anti-hero/villainous roles after a brief hiatus. He was busy exploring his tryst with comedy and drama films like Newton, Bareily ki Barfi and Fukrey Returns.

Super 30, a film based on mathematician Anand Kumar and his journey in helping 30 underprivileged students to crack the IIT-JEE, is all set to release on January 26, 2019.

On the work front, Tripathi has a jam-packed year ahead. After making his Tamil debut in Kaala, he will be seen in Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hain, Drive and Super 30.
