Pankaj Tripathi joins the cast of Irrfan Khan’s Angrezi Medium
After Radhika Madan, it is actor Pankaj Tripathi whose name has been added to the star cast of Irrfan Khan’s comeback film Angrezi Medium. Tripathi will make a cameo appearance in the movie. He will play a wheeler-dealer, Tony who runs a travel agency and helps Khan’s character and his on-screen daughter (Madan) to reach the UK.
“It is my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinoo (Dinesh Vijan) that made me say yes,” said Tripathi as he talked about taking up the project. The film’s producer Vijan also said that he finds ways of including the actor in his films as he considers him his lucky mascot. “He is my lucky mascot; I find a way to include him in my films. He’s a huge admirer of Irrfan and was more than happy to lend himself in a small way,” said Vijan.
Vijan and Tripathi have worked together on films like Rajkummar Rao starrer Stree and Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon starrer Luka Chuppi.
