Pankaj Tripathi has become the most sought after actor in the past couple of years. Even during the lockdown, the actor has managed to keep the audience in awe with his performances in films like Ludo and Mimi. He’s also actively spreading awareness about drug abuse and has used his social media to spread the word.
A report had also suggested that he is working with the Narcotics Control Bureau for an anti-drug campaign and has been made the brand ambassador for the same. Denying any such news, Tripathi told a leading daily, “The report was false. I am not the brand ambassador for creating awareness against drug abuse. On Anti-Drugs Day, I was being requested by a senior officer from Bihar-Jharkhand to share an awareness message, following which I created one for him. Nowadays, during the social media era, the news gets twisted easily. When that video started working, people started saying that I’ve been made the brand ambassador. Main brand ambassador nahi hoon, brand ambassador samaan bechta hai koi. Awareness laana hai mujhe. I am also related to Khadi in Bihar; I promote it, which is at least a product, NCB is not a product. Only for awareness, I created a video, that’s it!”
