Pankaj Tripathi's take on star kids being 'spotted' is full of honesty and wit

Pankaj Tripathi feels audience are so fascinated by the aura of a star, that they fail to appreciate real art

Pankaj Tripathi needs no introduction. One of the most talented, versatile and under rated actors in Bollywood, always out-shines rest of the characters with ease in any film. The actor who was recently seen in the star studded film Bareilly Ki Barfi, bagged his fair share of praises for his quirky dialogues. But the actor feels audience are so fascinated by the aura of a star, that they fail to appreciate real art.

According to the reports published by a leading daily, Pankaj said “Every other day, I see photos of star kids that they were spotted here and there. I have been in the industry for over 10 years now. Mujhe toh koi spot nahi karta! Spot hona asaan hai, to gain respect, you need to have the know-how of your craft.”

Pankaj has proved his acting mettle in the star studded films like Fukrey, Gangs of Wasseypur and more. The 40-year old actor will next be seen in comedy film Fukrey Returns.

Pankaj further added that “Our country wants big stars in every field —politics mein bhi star chahiye, cricket mein bhi aur cinema mein toh chahiye hi chahiye! People are attracted towards things which are more popular than real.”

“However, it is not necessary that every popular thing will be good too. Singers in our country who have real knowledge about their art are still unknown. I believe it’s our education system which fails to teach students how to appreciate art.”
