My role is a 'guru dakshina' to Irrfan Khan in 'Angrezi Medium', says Pankaj Tripathi
Film ‘Angrezi Medium’ marks Pankaj Tripathi's first collaboration with Irrfan and Tripathi calls his role in this film a ‘guru dakshina’ to Irrfan Khan.
Ahead of the release of Irrfan's Angrezi Medium, Bollywood actor Pankaj Tripathi says his cameo appearance in "Angrezi Medium" is a gift to mentor-figure, actor Irrfan Khan, who has been the biggest inspiration in his career.
The film marks Tripathi's first collaboration with Irrfan and he said it was a no-brainer for him to say yes to the movie.
"I have always been inspired by Irrfan's performances as an actor. He has had a huge impact on my life, especially with his performances from 'Haasil', 'Maqbool', 'The Warrior' and 'Paan Singh Tomar'.
"My guru and also my senior from the National School of Drama, I have always wanted to impact audiences the way he does. His contribution has been greatly acknowledged in the Indian cinema and my role in this film is almost like my ‘guru dakshina’ to him," Tripathi said in a statement.
