Pankaj Tripathi plays a cop in Rajinikanth starrer Kaala. I just asked how many days of shooting will I have with Rajnikanth. When I worked with him, I realised that he wants to make every scene entertaining. If you don’t, you can’t really act well. Pankaj, however, feels acting in a language which you don’t understand can be challenging. In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, Pankaj revealed that working with Rajinikanth was no less than a fanboy moment for him. Onscreen, he has a larger than life image and his fans worship him. Related News

Pankaj signed off by sharing that one thing which he learnt from Rajinikanth. In north India, actors haven’t enjoyed much success in politics,” Pankaj opined. I managed it somehow,” he told us. It was only because of Rajinikanth,” he added. But, in person, he is a complete opposite. I don’t know how much he can adapt to politics. From people queuing up outside cinema halls even before dawn to Rajini maniacs dancing during the screening of the film, it was a sight to behold. But there is nothing different or new in this role. Kaala also stars Nana Patekar. Kaala had its big-ticket release on June 7, and the nation was back to seeing the fan frenzy which a Rajinikanth film invites. He is a magical actor. If I had to choose it as an acting job, I wouldn’t have done it. “My only purpose of doing this film was to meet, speak and work closely with Rajinikanth. I used to ask a question, become quiet and just listen to him,” he said. “After meeting him, I became confident that my process and my way of performing is correct. He is like any common man. But in southern states many chief ministers have been former actors. That moved me a lot. And he meets and interacts with people with the same simplicity. “It is such a simple experience working with him. “I think politics will be difficult for him because we see politicians changing their stances and sides every day. I didn’t even read the script or hear the story. And now I have taken his words very seriously. That man is a school in himself.”

The Bollywood actor, however, feels politics will be a difficult territory for Rajinikanth. “I am playing a cop in this movie and wherever there is a crime, I am found there. More than acting, you are focused on ensuring that your lips are moving correctly with the dialogues. Speaking south Indian languages is very difficult. “Of course, I would like to do only those movies where I can understand the language. Talking about working with another great actor, he shared, “In our very first meeting, Nana Patekar told me I was a very good actor and that I should stop doing mediocre films.
