Pankaj Tripathi Says Mukesh Ambani Doesn't Look Rich, Opens Up On Stereotypes In Bollywood

-

One of the finest actors and performers in Bollywood, Pankaj Tripathi, has the power to engage the audience by getting into the skin of the character he plays on screen. His upcoming movie, Main Atal Hoon, will see him playing the role of the late Prime Minister of India, Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The actor, who is known to shatter several stereotypes in Bollywood and deliver incredible performances, opened up about how the industry has stereotyped certain roles. In a recent interview with ANI, Pankaj Tripathi unleashed his candid side.

To convince the viewers about his point about stereotypes existing in Bollywood, he even gave a witty example of business tycoon Mukesh Ambani.

Pankaj Tripathi says Mukesh Ambani doesn't look rich

In the same interview with ANI, Pankaj Tripathi was asked about his views on whether Bollywood has stereotyped actors and roles. The actor spilled some interesting beans as he unleashed his candid and witty answers.

The actor said the Hindi film industry has stereotyped what actors should look like. At times, even the junior artist is required to look a certain way. Speaking about the same, he cited Reliance Industries' Mukesh Ambani's reference and said if he were an actor, nobody would ever cast him for a rich person's role.

'Cinema has created the stereotype that a doctor looks like this and an engineer looks like this. During an audition, even if a junior artist is required, it is plainly stated: affluent look, elegant appearance. In movies, we see doctors like Katrina Kaif, but how many times have we seen them at AIIMS?" the Mirzapur actor said.

Tripathi further added, 'If Mukesh Ambani was not a businessman and he went for an audition, he would never be cast as a rich man sincerich looks to hai hi nahin. What is a rich look? He is India's richest businessman. So, people in Bollywood have created these stereotypes.'

Opening up further on his experience about confining actors into a certain box of stereotypes, Pankaj Tripathi recalled how films in the past were filled with conventional ideas.

"Hero dheere se muskurate hai par villain zor se haste hai aisa humne movies mein dekha hai par haqeeqat mein khul ke hasne wala dil ka accha hota hai. The hero laughs softly, but the villain chuckles aloud. We've seen this in movies, but in fact, the person who laughs openly is compassionate," the actor concluded.

On the work front

Pankaj Tripathi has become synonymous with the king of content. Be it OTT platforms or cinemas, he is conquering it all. The actor was last seen in OMG 2, alongside Akshay Kumar and Yami Gautam.

He will next be seen in Main Atal Hoon. Pankaj will play the role of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, India's late Prime Minister and the founder of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).

Main Atal Hoon is all set to release on January 19 in cinemas near you.
