On the occasion of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, actor Pankaj Tripathi of Mirzapur expressed his support to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). He claims that officials from the NCB Patna Zonal Unit had contacted him about the matter.
“The authorities from NCB Patna contacted me about this cause, and everything that has to do with Bihar and public problems piques my interest to offer my support to such initiatives and awareness-building drives,” he says.
Pankaj claims that it is his societal responsibility to carry out his responsibilities. “Cinema is one of the most popular mediums among young people, and if we launch an awareness campaign as actors, we can reach a larger audience and have a greater influence. As an actor and a citizen, I have a civic responsibility to do my part as best I can,” he stated.
Pankaj Tripathi made his Bollywood debut in the 2004 film ‘Run,’ in which he played an uncredited role. Following that, he appeared in films such as Omkara, Shurya, Raavan, Agneepath, Gunday, and Masaan, to mention a few. His big break came when he appeared in Anurag Kashyap’s film series “Gangs of Wasseypur,” in which he played an antagonist.
Since then, Pankaj Tripathi has starred in a slew of other films and television shows, including ‘Mirzapur,’ ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi,’ ‘Newton,’ ‘Stree,’ ‘Gurgaon,’ ‘Ludo,’ and many more.
Pankaj Tripathi, one of Bollywood’s most prolific performers, will next be seen in Ranveer Singh’s 83 and Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey.
