MUMBAI: With his hard work and dedication, Pankaj Tripathi has carved a niche for himself in the acting profession. He is one of the most popular and sought-after actors in B-town. And now the good news is his wife Mridula Tripathi is also entering Bollywood.
Pankaj has revealed that Mridula is all set to make her Bollywood debut very soon. The actor, who is preparing for the release of his upcoming film Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga, shared that Mridula is also a part of the film. Pankaj also shared the story of how Mridula landed the cameo appearance, and revealed that she didn't even ask to be paid for it. Mridula's guest role will see her playing a character, who is Bengali. Pankaj told India Today, "My wife Mridula will be debuting with Sherdil. She has done one scene in the film. Director Srijit Mukerjee, who has a Bengali connection with my wife, asked her to come on the sets and promised to give her one scene. She immediately said yes because she got to wear a beautiful Bengali saree in the film. It was an easy bribe, she didn't even get paid."
The couple had met during a wedding in 1993, when they were still in school. They initially struggled to convince their parents for their marriage as Pankaj's sister was married to Mridula's brother, and it was against customs to have two marriages in the same family.
Finally, Pankaj and Mridula tied the knot in January 2004, and welcomed daughter Aashi in 2006.
Coming back to the film, Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga is scheduled to release on June 24. The film is inspired by the real events that took place in the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve.
