Pankaj Tripathi On Struggling Days

“To be honest, I did not earn anything between 2004 and 2010. She (his wife, Mridula) bore the burden of all expenses involved in the upkeep of our household. I used to roam around in Andheri and urge people ‘koi acting karwa lo, koi acting karwa lo (someone, please give me an acting job)’. But no one listened to me at the time. Now, when I go home, I find movies being offered in my parking lot.”
Now Offers At Parking Lot
Pankaj also talked about how he is flooded with offers. He added,
“I find directors in my parking lot, asking me, ‘Where are you? I want to do a film with you, and please sit for a narration’. Earlier, I struggled but found no jobs even when I searched for them in Andheri, but now there are queues of movies being offered right in my parking lot. During those struggling days, Mridula used to take care of all the expenses, from the house rent to other basic needs.”
