Pankaj Tripathi gets irritated by this habit of his co-stars 

In last few years, actor Pankaj Tripathi has given several iconic performances while playing wide ranging characters and thus he has gained quite a prominence in the Hindi entertainment space. However, all this success hasn't corrupted Pankaj and he's just as modest and humble as ever. His co-stars and directors often talk about how easy he is to work with but there is a certain habit of co-actors that often irritates Pankaj Tripathi while working on a set.

During a conversation with Times of India, Pankaj said, "If there’s a technical problem then I give a retake. If the director asks for ten retakes, I’ll give those happily, but I don’t ask for retakes. I give my best as per my understanding from the very first take."

Further in his statement, Pankaj shared that he gets irritated when a co-star asks for retakes. "I wonder why so many takes are needed? How much of it will actually be used in the film? I get agitated, but I don’t tell the director. Because I think that I’m hired for 8-10 hours of work. The director may take 10 or 20 takes. I have to give those. Waise bhi acting ka payment kaun deta hai? Waiting aur retake ka payment milta hai. (We don’t get paid for acting. We get paid for waiting and retakes.)," said Pankaj.

Tripathi will soon be seen in Kabir Khan's '83' and apart from that he also has 'Bachchan Pandey' and 'Oh My God 2' in the production.
