'Man of many talents' Pankaj Tripathi flaunts his impressive dholak playing skills

Pankaj Tripathi's astounding performances are often hailed by one and all, but little did anyone know that the versatile actor is also well versed in playing Tabla. A video of the actor showing off his musical skills with a man singing and playing a ukulele is doing the rounds on the internet. The video is shared by the person named Shashibhushan, who is also the man singing the song. He has captioned the video in Hindi which loosely translates to, 'Today, I got a chance to visit Kaleen bhaiya’s house. Pankaj bhaiya is a beautiful human being, so much so that in our second meeting itself, I got the guts to call him bhaiya instead of sir.' Earlier during an interview, Pankaj Tripathi, who has immortalised many characters on the silver screen went on to talk about the basic ingredient behind that astounding output. He revealed, 'I make sure that I adopt an acting style that is realistic and relatable. Be it comedy or any other character that I play, I ensure they are projected as human as possible on-screen.' He added, 'To be able to relate with three different generations of a family is something I never thought I would do one day, and I'm so delighted that I have something to offer to each generation through some of my projects that everybody could enjoy.' During the same interaction Pankaj Tripathi also went on to emphasise on the importance of teaching feminism to young boys and that boys need to learn right from the beginning that no gender is ever superior or inferior. He said, 'I feel that parents put all their energies into grooming and teaching their daughters how to behave themselves but when it comes to boys, it’s not given the same importance as it needs. In today’s education, I think the inclusion of feminism is a must for all young boys. If this is done, we won’t have to “save” our daughters anymore.' Furthermore, he added, 'feminism, which talks of equal rights and opportunities for men and women, is a study that should be instilled in boys just as strongly as girls who are often taught to behave themselves in society. Boys need to learn right from the beginning that no gender is ever superior or inferior. Respecting the other genders as well as empowering each other should be taught early on, not just to girls but to young boys as well. To see the existence of such a large gender disparity in our country needs immediate attention and change.' Talking about his work front, Pankaj Tripathi will soon be seen in '83' alongside Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
