Pankaj Tripathi has been missing from the big screen for some time, but is now gearing up for many projects. Currently, he is in Lucknow shooting for his movie, Main Hoon Atal, which is the biopic of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. And there is one common point between the reel and the real Atal: their love for poetry and literature.

Pankaj says, “During my research for Main Hoon Atal, I found out, and it’s also widely known, that apart from politics and diplomacy, Atal-ji was a great poet and had an immense love and attachment towards literature and language. Through my research, I found that he used to write poetry to convey his state of mind. I could relate to that, because good poetry has a deep effect on me too, especially Hindi poetry. I grew up reading some of the great writers and sometimes being inspired by them I scribble a few lines in the form of poems too. It was nice to know that there are poems and poets that both Atal-ji and I liked.”

The seasoned actor is also looking forward to his upcoming release OMG 2, which is set to hit screens from August 11, 2023. Apart from that, Fukrey 3 will also be released soon, wherein he will be playing the role of Pandit for the third time.
