I live in the present: Pankaj Tripathi
Mumbai: "After sometime there will another Pankaj Tripathi", says the award winning actor, admitting he is aware that every actor in the film industry today is replaceable. Tripathi has made a significant mark in the past few years after a long struggle before the glory.
He shot to fame with Anurag Kashyap's 2012 gangster drama Gangs of Wasseypur but before that he slogged for years and kept working hard, till the industry took notice of his talent.
Reflecting on his early days, Tripathi, a student of NSD said, "I was not worried much back then. Now, when I am successful I am not arrogant, I am not flying high. I know that I am popular now and there is stardom but it is not at all permanent. I know after sometime there will another Pankaj Tripathi. My success might fade away as they will find a new name. I was not worried then, I am not worried now," said the actor.
