Pankaj Tripathi has begun filming for Srijit Mukherji’s next film, Sherdil, after wrapping up the much-anticipated sequel to OMG with Akshay Kumar. The versatile actor, who plays the lead in the film, is joined by outstanding performers such as Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta. The filming of Sherdil, which was scheduled to begin in 2020, was postponed due to the pandemic. Everyone on site is pumped now that the cast and crew have resumed filming.
Speaking about working with Srijit Mukherji, Pankaj says, “Srijit is a fabulous director. He needs no introduction. His work speaks for itself. When Sherdil was offered to me, I jumped on the idea. The story has a definite character in itself. It is a beautifully written script and I trust Srijit to bring each character to life convincingly. That’s his USP.”
The director of the film said, ” Pankaj Tripathi is one of the finest actors in the country today. Having him on set is half the battle won. He is always excited to try new things and improvise when need be. He is a director’s delight.”
Reliance Entertainment and T-Series are collaborating on the project.
