Pankaj Tripathi

A great Bollywood Critic and a Gifted Natural actor


Famous for his natural acting, Pankaj Tripathi’s breakthrough came with his character ‘Sultan Quereshi’ in the 2012 film‘Gangs of Wasseypur’.

His dream of becoming a farmer remained unachieved due to insufficient funds to buy a tractor. He has said that if his father could have afforded to buy a tractor, he would not have been an actor today.

During the festive seasons, he used to play the role of a girl in his village plays which was applauded by the villagers, ultimately prompting him to make a career in the field of acting.

Despite being rejected from the National School of Drama twice, he persisted on becoming an actor & as a student, he did theatre & was active in college politics. However, out of fear of failure in acting, he also worked briefly for a Five Star Hotel in Patna. 

 He debuted in 2004 with a minor role in ‘Run’ and ‘Omkara’, and has since worked in more than 520 films and 65 television shows. His role in ‘Sacred Games’ was a game changer for his career. 

For him, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ changed the course of his career and since then he has gone on to star in critically appraised movies receiving immense appreciation for his performances.
