Pankaj Tripathi is one of the busiest actors of the Bollywood and is working back to back on almost eight projects. He recently wrapped up the shooting for Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer Stree in Chanderi, Bhopal. He is playing one of the key characters in this horror comedy which is directed by Amar Kaushik.
Stree is based on the urban legend of Nale Ba that spread like wildfire in Karnataka in the 1990s. Although Rajkummar and Pankaj have worked together in several films in the past it was Shraddha whom Pankaj shared a special bond with while shooting.
National Award winner Pankaj Tripathi comes from a middle-class farming family owing to which the actor has a very friendly and down to earth persona with everyone he meets.
While working with Shraddha, she was touched by these qualities, which reminded her of home. She would often say on sets that Pankaj was like a family member to her and reminded her of her family back home in Mumbai while they were shooting. Adding to that Pankaj also knows Padmini Kolhapure very well, having worked with her previously.
“Shraddha said it’s like working with a family member because I am working with her on Stree and I am working with her uncle now and I have worked with her aunt in the past. I told her it was a coincidence, but I truly am working with her whole house!” the Masaan actor Pankaj commented.
Stree would be the first time both actors are working together and it seems like they took back some golden memories from the shoot.
