Pankaj made his acting debut in 2004 with a brief role in Run and then Omkara (2006). He has appeared in many films and television shows. However, he rose to fame with his role in the film series Gangs of Wasseypur in 2012. Since then he has starred in many films including Fukrey, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Newton, Stree, Ludo and Mimi. He is best known for his lead role in the web series Mirzapur (he played the character of Akhandanand Tripathi) and has also worked in Criminal Justice, Yours Truly and Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors.
During a recent interaction with Connect FM Canada, when asked if he will avoid abuse in his films, Pankaj said, “Ji meine taye kar liya hai ki mere jo bhi kirdaar honge ati aavashyak hua toh mein creatively uses tarah se dikhaunga ( Yes, I decided not to. If my character demands it, then I will choose to portray it in a creative way).”
In a 2020 interview with Mid-Day, Pankaj said he did not condone “abuse on a whim”. He said, “When actors abuse on screen, they do it in a certain context. Abuse on a whim is not something I condone or support. Even in my scenes I avoid coarse language unless the situation calls for it. It is not a case of being morally cautious. I’m just conscious of what I put in as an artist.”
