Mumbai: Not only stories related to Bollywood films, stories of stars coming to films also often bring a story with them. Sometimes these stories are emotional and sometimes very funny. Sometimes these stories get lost somewhere, but sometimes they come out in one way or the other. Similar is the story of Pankaj Tripathi (Gangs Of Wasseypur Pankaj Tripathi). Pankaj Tripathi’s entry in Bollywood was done in a very funny way. He entered films from TV, leaving everything behind. On one hand the actor had to stop the marriage, on the other hand he had the opportunity to be a part of Anurag Kashyap’s iconic film Gangs of Wasseypur.
Actually, when the casting was going on for Gangs of Wasseypur, Pankaj Tripathi was doing a TV serial. But, he was friends with Manoj Bajpayee. In such a situation, he asked Anurag Kashyap to watch a show by Pankaj Tripathi. Anurag Kashyap liked the style of Pankaj Tripathi. Screen test happened and Pankaj was selected. But, the problem was that in those days Pankaj Tripathi was shooting for a serial.
Pankaj Tripathi had to stop marriage in serial
In the story of the serial, he had to stop a marriage, but the producer refused to leave the set of the show. What was it then, Pankaj Tripathi also made up his mind and rebelled and left the shooting of the serial. Because, he did not want to let go of such a good opportunity. The surprising thing is that then Pankaj Tripathi did not even know what role was offered to him. But, he didn’t want to take the risk of letting go of the role he got in Anurag Kashyap’s film, that’s why he left the shooting without thinking anything and rebelled and went to start his film innings.
Sultan Qureshi’s role in Gangs of Wasseypur
He was offered the role of Sultan Qureshi in Gangs of Wasseypur. When Pankaj Tripathi did not agree in any way, the producers somehow dragged the story of the serial for 1 week and then Pankaj Tripathi completed the shooting of both the serial and the film. But, Pankaj Tripathi got a lot of benefit from his decision. This film of Anurag Kashyap opened his fate in such a way that he is the most famous and favorite villain of the industry today. Pankaj Tripathi has made a splash today not only in films but also in the OTT world.
