National Award winner Pankaj Tripathi recently finished shooting for the Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer, Stree in Chanderi. The Newton actor plays a key character in this horror comedy, directed by Amar Kaushik. Stree is based on the urban legend of Nale Ba that spread like wildfire in Karnataka in the 1990s.
Even though Rajkummar and Pankaj have worked together earlier it was Shraddha whom Pankaj shared a special bond during the shoot. Pankaj comes from a middle-class has a very friendly and down to earth persona with everyone he meets. While working him, Shraddha was touched by these qualities, which reminded her of home. She would often say on sets that Pankaj was like a family member to her.
“Shraddha said it’s like working with a family member because I am working with her on Stree and I am working with her uncle now and I have worked with her aunt in the past. I told her it was a coincidence, but I truly am working with her whole house!”,
