Pankaj Tripathi is considered one of the finest actors of current times. A man who knows his craft impeccably well, it looks like Tripathi might be planning to dabble in his other fine skills too. The actor is a passionate storyteller and any one who knows him will agree that he has a knack of imbuing life into the most mundane experiences.
His friends in the industry have often told him to take up writing but as someone who has over 10 films this year and is constantly shooting, he rarely gets the time to hone his hobbies.
Due to the unexpected break of work for actors as result of coronavirus, the actor is now at his Madh Island home for the last one week. On a whim, he started writing that he had in mind for a long time and is currently in the phase of developing it.
Pankaj tells us, “Actors are often closely associated with writing, even in the projects that they are just acting in. As artists, we communicate to the audience what the writer is trying to tell through his body language, his ability to emote on screen.
Writing is a creative extension of me and I am not doing it with the motive of writing a screenplay really. I started with penning down my thoughts for the sake of keeping my skills sharpened. Writing and acting are interconnected for me. I am writing to fulfil my own creative quest. Let me see how the finished product turns out and if it is my satisfaction, I will figure what I want to do with it.”
