Iqra Aziz delighted after Pankaj Tripathi responds to her
Television Actor Iqra Aziz recently praised Indian series Mirzapur which won hearts of fans in Pakistan and across the border as well.
Taking to her Instagram stories on November 5, Aziz shared a picture of Pankaj Tripathi and wrote, "Hayee Kaleen bhaiya ap mere favourite ho (Oh Kaleen, you are my favourite)."
But Aziz would've never thought her random appreciation would be acknowledged by the Indian actor who also starred in Netflix's Sacred Games. Yet, it did, and it's safe to say the Suno Chanda star was over the moon.
Tripathi went on to respond to the Pakistani starlet with a simple emoticon, a screenshot of which was shared by Aziz on her Instagram stories lately.
"Pankaj ji replied to me and I can't believe it!" wrote Aziz on top of the screenshot with several celebratory emoticons.
Tripathi is currently earning plaudits for his role in Mirzapur as Kaleen Bhaiya and his latest film Ludo.
Opening up in an interview about one scene that stood out for him, Tripathi said, "I remember the scene where Kaleen Bhaiya meets the Chief Minister and Lalit is with him. I was really unwell during that scene. If you look closely you will see my face is swollen. I remember the humour of the scene and how Kaleen Bhaiya turns out to be so brutal by the end. There was also a scene where Kaleen Bhaiya along with Maqbool goes to the doctor and I remember I fell off the chair while reading the scene. It was too funny. We wanted it to be shot on a serious note so that the audience can enjoy it."
Asked why he chose to do Mirzapur, Tripathi responded, "I liked the writing when I heard it. I thought it was an interesting role. I enjoyed the first scene where Kaleen is built up. How this character is so powerful for the outsiders but falls weak in his personal life. OTT didn't have that much significance back then but for me the platform never matters, the performance does."
Mirzapur's season 2 recently premiered on Amazon Prime and received a lot of appreciation from the fans.
The story revolves around a shocking incident at a wedding procession that ignites a series of events entangling the lives of two families in the lawless city of Mirzapur.
