The most beautiful part of his run is how lucky the man has been for the shows he has been a part of.
Pankit, who has not spent a single day sitting at home since his career first began, has been an asset to his producers as well as his cast and crew of the shows he has taken on and continues to remain a lucky charm even today.
From his initial days on Kabhi Sautan Kabhi Saheli to Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant, Pankit has worked wonders. His debut show opposite Anita Hassnandani was not only his claim to fame, but a feather on the cap of Balaji producer Ekta Kapoor. He went on to revive the magic with UTV Productions’ Special Squad, which began a new and refreshing trend of crime and cop based shows. Then came Kum Kum, the longest running show in the history of Indian television, that too without the change of cast, the seven year long show featured Pankit for an entire year. His entry not only added a much needed spark but helped garner massive TRPs for the show.
His luckiest of shows however is considered to be Sanjeevani’s second installment Dill Mill Gayye where he played the bubbly Dr. Atul. His character and chemistry with the other cast members added the much needed x-factor to the show.
A king with no crown, Pankit continues to have the Midas touch when it comes to Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant. With the show shifting focus to Dhyan’s complications, Pankit Thakkar and Ridhima Pandit’s devar-bhabhi chemistry is emerging in the limelight. The track not only unravels a fresh dimension to Rajni, but also gives the audience a complete family story. The most astonishing fact about the track is that it managed to garner a TRP of 1.4 despite not being about the typical hero-heroine romance, that too at a time when the IPL is all that viewers are raving about. Now that is a miracle on its on!
Now if that’s not the Midas touch then I don’t know what is!
