Pankaj Tripathi's wife Mridula makes her debut with Sherdil
Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga is directed by Srijit Mukherji
Actor Pankaj Tripathi revealed recently that his wife Mridula would be making her debut in Srijit Mukherji's Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga.
"My wife Mridula will be debuting with Sherdil. She has done one scene in the film. Director Srijit Mukherji, 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," said Pankaj as per a report in India Today.
When asked whether his daughter, Aashi Tripathi, who had joined him at the IIFA awards ceremony at Abu Dhabi, has any interest in acting, Pankaj said, “As of now she has no plans to enter Bollywood. Right now she is studying. I haven't seen the future yet but will see when the time comes. For now, I want her to study hard and play sports. But she writes really well, she is very good at literature and is at the top of her class. Also, she reads a lot, but for now, she hasn't shown any interest. Will see what happens in the future."
Sherdil also features Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta in pivotal roles. The film is inspired by the real events that took place in the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve. It is slated for release on June 24.
