Pankaj Tripathi is currently among the few actors who have multiple projects lined up; from web series to movies. Recently, the critically acclaimed actor visited the National School of Drama (NSD) and interacted with the students in a Bharat Rang Mahotsav session. He spoke with her about a variety of topics, including her experience in the industry, the difficulties actors face trying to make a mark in the industry, and much more. In addition to this, he is also making headlines for another reason as he wants to take legal action against the creators of Azamgarh.
Pankaj Tripathi gets angry at Azamgarh makers; He Plans To Take Legal Action For Using His Name For Promotions: Reports
For the inexperienced, Azamgarh is the first feature film from National Award winner Kamlesh Mishra. In the film, Pankaj Tripathi plays the titular character of a Maulavi, who leads the youth down the path of terrorism. Pankaj reportedly saw billboards for the film before its OTT release and apparently upset the actor. According to a report by Amar Ujala, Tripathi was told that it is a short film and filmed it for only three days.
While the filmmakers are using his name to promote the film as if he had a lead role in it, Pankaj doesn’t want that “cheap popularity.” The report also added that the actor worked on this film without receiving any remuneration. Tripathi is said to not want creators to promote Azamgarh using their name and if they disagree, you will take legal action against them. The actor feels that he has a small role in the film, and the way he appears on the poster is incorrect.
However, it is worth mentioning that Tripathi has not issued any official statement in this regard, so far.
Coming to the professional front, Tripathi was last seen in the third installment of his popular Criminal Justice web series. He has a lot of projects in his kitty including Subway in Dino, Fukrey 3and omg 2, among others.
