"Pankaj Tripathi birthday special: 5 movies that prove he's a great actor"

Birthday Special

For the longest time, Bollywood fans have primarily admired the main characters or heroes. However, audiences have evolved through time, and a few actors are finally being recognised for their underappreciated performances. Pankaj Tripathi is one such name. Yes, celebrities come and go, but actors such as him are here to stay.

With his acting talents and style, the Mirzapur actor, who is 44 today, has won the hearts of his fans time and time again. With notable performances like Sultan in Gangs of Wasseypur, Anup Saxena in Gunjan Saxena, Kaleen Bhaiya in Mirzapur, and others, he has mostly connected with millennial movie buffs, but there are a few characters he has played that are still undervalued. So, in honour of Pankaj Tripathi's birthday, we've compiled a list of the top 5 flicks where the actor's secret talents made sequences appear spectacular.

Pankaj Tipathi in Dharm


The National Film Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration was given to this film in 2007. Pankaj Tripathi portrayed an angry individual who was involved in rioting in the film. In addition to Supriya Pathak and Pankaj Kapur, Dharm included Supriya Pathak and Pankaj Kapur in lead roles.

Pankaj Tripathi in Mithya


This film was regarded as one of the industry's most well-liked parallel theatres. Despite the fact that Pankaj Tripathi had a minor role in this film, he managed to show his acting chops.

Bareily Ki Barfi

Bareilly Ki Barfi:

In the film Bareilly Ki Barfi, the actor played Kriti Sanon's father. Pankaj's relationship with his daughter, who was an outspoken small-town kid, was quite touching.



Sadhya Ji in Masaan is another supporting character that Pankaj did that deserves to be recognised. While his role didn't have many comedic overtones, the actor's delivery of the dialogue left a lasting impression on us.

Irffan Kahn and Pankaj Tripathi

Angrezi Medium 

Pankaj Tripathi has proven that he doesn't require a leading role to make an impact, and this character is proof of that. In the film Angrezi Medium, he played Tony the Fixer. The actor's scenes in the film with Irrfan Khan and Deepak Dobriyal are impossible to forget.
