Heres why Pankaj Tripathi is irreplaceable

After he has gained popularity through the OTT platforms, Pankaj Tripathi has become a really bankable star. His involvement elevates a films quality and it can gaurantee its success. While every filmmaker is so eager to work with Pankaj, there are few who didn't find him fit and replaced him later. Pankaj recently talked about such incidents in an conversation with TOI.

When asked whether he has ever been replaced in a film, Pankaj said, "Oh, so many times. You are told you have been finalised till the very end, and one day, you find out you have been replaced. Of course, it hurts, but it is a part of the process. However, every project I have been replaced in, has eventually flopped; trust me, I didn’t jinx them (laughs). So, in hindsight, it was for the best! Jo nahi ho sake poorn kaam, unko karta hoon main pranaam (Wishes that remain unfulfilled are probably for the best)."

Since he is quite successful these days, Pankaj Tripathi gets lots of film offers these days. He says, "When an actor’s films work, he is bound to get 2-3 offers every day, but how much can one do? I am already booked through till 2022 year-end. Some filmmakers are so keen to work with me, they are even willing to wait till 2023-24 to get my dates, but how can I commit to dates so far ahead, especially during such uncertain times. However, it is very difficult to say ‘no’ to work that you had strived for in the past 10 years."
