‘I don't like crime dramas with guns and gaalis’: Pankaj Tripathi

Pankaj Tripathi may play gangsters of all hues but the actor’s personal choice is the exact opposite. The actor, who will be seen playing a gangster in the upcoming Anurag Basu film Ludo, says he prefers slice-of-life dramas with everyday conflicts. The Netflix original comes on the heels of Mirzapur season 2 where he was seen playing Kaleen bhaiya, the don of fictional town Mirzapur. In an interview with HT Entertainment Editor Jyoti Bawa, Pankaj and Anurag speak about the process of working on this ensemble film and Pankaj’s character, Sattu, who is supposed to play the role of ‘dice’ or the catalyst in the film. “I have a sweet little love story in Ludo, this is the first time I am romancing in a film,” the actor drops. Ludo, to be released on November 12, also stars Abhishek A Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Rajkummar Rao, Rohit Saraf, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra, Pearle Maaney, Inayat Verma, Asha Negi and Shalini Vats.
