Shocking! Pankaj Tripathi was jailed for a week in his college days

On Monday, Pankaj Tripathi turns 46, and we think back to the period when he first mentioned going to jail. He was sentenced to seven days in prison when he participated in student politics.

Pankaj joined the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) while he was a student at Patna's Magadh University, according to a 2019 PTI article. He informed the news agency about his encounter with Patna's Beur Prison "In prison, you have nothing to do. No cooking, no cooking meetings, nothing. You are all by yourself. A man starts learning about himself when he is incredibly lonely. In those seven days, I met myself. When I began reading Hindi literature, I became aware of how out of place I was in it. That totally altered me," added he.

Many of his old ABVP colleagues are now MLAs in Bihar, he added in an interview with The Lallantop in 2020. Additionally, he noted that the communist parties in the area and the RJD-Congress coalition government in Bihar at the time had organized a protest against a shooting event in Madhubani in which police fired on students.

We had to stay in a different barrack since we were political prisoners, and since it was close to the Christmas break for the courts, we had to wait for a week. We were released later on bail.

Criminal Justice Adhura Sach, Pankaj's most recent film, is currently available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar. His recent theatrical release, Sherdil The Pilibhit Saga, is also currently available on Netflix. He has a pretty fascinating lineup for projects. He will appear in the forthcoming movie OMG Oh My God 2 with Akshay Kumar. Additionally, he is working on the third season of his well-liked crime-focused series Mirzapur on Prime Video.
