This year has been amazing for the Newton actor who has already had over five releases and is awaiting more. Having completed shooting for Anubhav Sinha’s Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai, the actor seems to be having an even more packed schedule than ever before.
In this month alone, he will be juggling three schedules. One is with Shakeela, the Indrajit Lankesh directorial venture that has him playing a Malayalam actor alongside his Fukrey co-star, Richa Chadha. In Luka Chuppi, a Laxman Utekar film, he will be acting with Kriti Sanon, his Bareily ki Barfi co-star and Kartik Aryan.
It is a character that he hasn’t ever played before, he plays an extravagant real estate agent with coloured hair. The actor is also completing last minute shoots for the Anand Kumar biopic, Super 30 which stars Hrithik Roshan in the titular role. But jumping from one set to the other doesn’t bother Pankaj.
“I love my work and I am blessed that I am getting some great projects. This month has been amazing for me as an actor where I’ve had to switch roles in days. One day I was on the sets of Criminal Justice and the next day, I’m playing an extravagant funny real estate agent in Luka Chuppi and the third day I’m a negative character in Super 30. It is a fun and challenging too. It makes me feel grateful everyday,” he said.
