‘Mirzapur’ fame actor Pankaj Tripathi on Wednesday dismissed the reports that he will be featuring in a Telugu movie with South superstar Pawan Kalyan.
In a brief statement, 45-year-old Pankaj said: “Reading the news of doing a film with Pawan Kalyan on social media made me really happy. I’m an admirer of his work. But as much as I want this news to be true, unfortunately, it’s not. But I do hope I get to work with him someday soon.”
Earlier it was reported that actor Pankaj Tripathi is approached to play a pivotal role in Pawan Kalyan’s upcoming movie titled ‘Bhavadeeyudu Bhagat Singh’. Though the makers have kept all things related to this movie under wraps, sources suggest that Pankaj, who appeared delighted to be a part of Pawan’s movie, has given his nod.
However, with Tripathi’s clarification, the news of his Tollywood debut turns out to be untrue.
Pankaj Tripathi was last seen in the film 83 and will next be seen in Bachchhan Paandey and OMG 2 – Oh My God! 2.
Pawan Kalyan, who bagged a massive success with his recent release ‘Bheemla Nayak’, will be seen next in ‘Bhavadeeyudu Bhagat Singh’, which will be helmed by Harish Shankar. Pooja Hegde is in talks to play the love interest of Pawan Kalyan in the so-called mass entertainer.
On the other hand, a song was already composed by Devi Sri Prasad. Mythri Movie Makers are producing this movie on a grand scale.
