Actor Pankaj Tripathi, who became a household name after his performance in Gangs Of Wasseypur followed by Mirzapur web series, is currently spending some quality time in his village Belsand, Bihar. “Mumbai ki bhagam-bhag se door”. Tripathi has visited Belsand after 5-6 months and is there for a few days.


Speaking of which, a video of Pankaj Tripathi talking about his experience of village life has caught our attention on Twitter. It’s a wholesome experience of village life where “life stands still.”

The clip posted by @UtkarshSingh_ begins with Kaleen Bhaiya preparing Bihar’s native dish, Litti-Chokha, with his family members at night. Tripathi then tells the viewers that he is enjoying his time in village.

Achcha aanand aa raha hai. Maa-Babuji se milne aaye the. Aanand le rahe hain gaaon ka, litti-chokha ban raha hai aaj. Tubewell mein naha rahe hain.

-Pankaj Tripathi

Hum bhagam-bhag, bhag daud, cinema, unse nikal kar yahan aaye hain. Thoda-thoda space milta hai yahan, thodi itminaan milti hai, lagta hai jeevan kitna thehra hua hai. Subah 11 bje lagta hai pata nahin samay chal kyun nahin raha hai. Mumbai ki bhaag-daud mein kai baar mehsus nahin hota hai, kab subah hui, kab dopahr, kab shaam.

-Pankaj Tripathi

Pankaj Tripathi then reveals that he is gearing up for the release of Fukrey 3, Oh My God! 2, and an Amazon Prime Video’s show.

Aur uske baad koi announce(ment) nahin hai, pipeline mein hai.

-Pankaj Tripathi

Yeah yeah, I know what are you searching here. The announcement of Mirzapur 3, right? Here’s what the actor says in the video when he is told that his fans are awaiting for its announcement:

Haan mai n bhi intezaar kar raha hoon. Achcha hai uski alag fan-base hai, log pasand karte hain Kaleen Bhaiya ko.

-Pankaj Tripathi

Netizens are calling him a grounded and humble film star:

Pankaj Tripathi made his Bollywood debut with a blink-and-miss appearance in the 2004 film, Run, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Bhumika Chawla.
