Pankaj Tripathi, who had impressed the audience with his role of Janhvi Kapoor's father in Netflix's Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, has now opened about Boney Kapoor’s compliment on playing Janhvi’s reel father
Pankaj had earlier mentioned in an interview that Biney was very happy to see him play the role of Janhvi's reel-life father. Remembering that moment, Pankaj had said, "Bonnie ji sent me a message late at night. He became very emotional after watching Gunjan Saxena. He was saying that I am a better father of Jahnavi than him. This thing touched my heart."
Now, on Neha Dhupia's No Filter Neha 5, Pankaj recalled the incident and said, "Main, in fact, sunke bhavuk ho gaya tha kyun ki meri bhi ek beti hai toh mein ek pita ka beti se judav janta hu. Woh mujhe accha bhi laga aur mujhe laga ke kitna inko film ne ya meri aur Janhavi ki chemistry ne itna impact kiya inke upar ki aisi line bol raha hai ek pita, ek real pita, reel pita ke baare mein. So, main bada emotional ho gaya tha sunn ke"
The actor also said that now he will take work a little slow as he has been working on back-to-back projects constantly. He said, "Bohot accha lag raha hai, aur iccha hai 2-4 mahine ghar pe baithne ki. Kyunki mujhe chutti ki sakht zaroorat thi aur main rehta hoon badi sundar jagah pe, charon taraf jungle hai, shanti hai. Aur thode din rahunga. Haan, abhi se, abhi se lag gaye hain log peeche. Lekin ab thoda kam karna hai, bohot ho gaya, too much acting ho gayi thi. Pichle 2-4 mahine ke lockdown ne thoda spiritual bana diya hai mujhe."
On the work front, Pankaj was last seen as Kaleen Bhaiya in Amazon Prime Video's Mirzapur 2 for which he received appreciation from the audience as well as the critics.
