Pankaj Tripathi rolls cut in target
Bollywood actor Pankaj Tripathi has revealed that he acted in Hrithik Roshan’s film Lakshya but his scenes were cut in the final cut and due to this he was not seen in the film. Pankaj opened up about his career in an interview to the Lalantop YouTube channel and said that the poster of Fookre 2 featured the VFX of the tiger but not him.
Pankaj Tripathi said- I felt bad
Pankaj said in an interview that once it was published in a newspaper that I had acted in Lakshya film. I felt bad because whoever read this in the paper would have thought I was lying because I didn’t appear in the film. Cinema is a lie, we make stories and show it on screen but I avoid lies in real life. Bihar red will be seen in the newspaper, but Bihar red is not in the picture. Pankaj revealed that a film distributor once told him that he would be a successful face.
Fukrey also talked about 2
Pankaj further said, I have never been launched and I have no godfather or any enemy in Mumbai. On the poster of Fukrey 2, they put a picture of a tiger with VFX along with the lead actors. I told him, this VFX is Al Tiger, he doesn’t want to make his career, I want to make it. You should put my photo instead. But this being a journey, time plays a very important role. Pankaj was recently seen in Fukrey 3. Apart from this, he was also seen in an important role in OMG 2. He will soon be seen in the film Main Atal Hoon in which he will play the role of Atal Bihari Bajpayee.
