Pankaj Tripathi: “Before choosing a project, I see if there is gender sensitivity or not”

Actor Pankaj Tripathi is known for his realistic acting and his outstanding characters, every time he does a film he leaves a remark on the audience. The actor has now revealed what he keeps in mind while choosing a film

“Sometimes I pick stories I like or characters I like, or something in the film that I really want to reach to the people, like a message. Before choosing a project I see if there is gender sensitivity or not and what a filmmaker is trying to say through the film,” Pankaj told IANS

He further added, “Box office collection is a by-product. I just want to pass on a message through a film. Every story has the purpose of giving out a message. So, I keep that in mind,”.

On the professional front, the actor is currently awaiting the release of his upcoming film Mimi where the actor is paired opposite Kriti Sanon. The film revolves around the idea of Surrogacy, which is again a very sensitive topic. Mimi follows the journey of an aspiring actress who becomes a surrogate mother to make easy money. But unfortunately for her, life has other plans. Besides Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi, Sai Tamhankar, Supriya Pathak and Manoj Pahwa are also the key characters of the film.

The film is helmed by Laxman Utekar and is bankrolled by Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films. Mimi will start streaming on Jio Cinema and Netflix from July 30, 2021.
