During a recent interview discussion, actor Pankaj Tripathi opened up about his conversation with one of the distributors from the entertainment industry. The actor was heard saying:

“I have been a part of two back-to-back hit films, OMG 2 and Fukrey 3. People talk a lot about box office collection. If we look at it from that perspective, though I only believe in good and bad films, both films have been successful. A very big distributor recently told me, ‘You’re now a saleable face’. I told him, ‘I don’t know about that, I just try to deliver good performances.”

“This is VFX Tiger, he doesn’t have to make a career. I have to. You could have used my picture instead of the Tiger.” He mentioned that it was his journey and time does play a significant role during the process.
