Pankaj Tripathi is a fantastic Indian actor. His versatile acting skills made all of us fall in love with him. His journey is also inspirational for many of us. All and sundry know him for the antagonistic role in the Gangs of Wasseypur film series. Lets know about Endearing Pankaj Tripathi – Mridula love story.
M is the wife of Pankaj Tripathi and she is a teacher by profession. We all know Pankaj and Mridula as husband and wife, but majority of us don’t know about arduous and endearing love story of this gracious couple. This cheerful couple has been married for 17 years and counting, and has a daughter named Aashi. So, lets throw some light over this beautiful love story and know little more about the love.
How and where did Pankaj Tripathi meet Mridula for first time?
In an interview with better India, Mridula revealed the story how and where did she meet Pankaj and how this journey started. It was on the 24 May 1993 and she aforementioned that “It was my elder brother’s Tilak (engagement ceremony). I was on my way to a tiny room on the terrace to get dressed when this boy with hazel eyes, brown hair, and a beard crossed me. Those eyes would go on to follow me during the entire function.”
At that time Mridula was in nineth grade and Pankaj was two-year senior. Throwing light on the first meet Pankaj said “It was my sister’s wedding and I saw her on the balcony of the terrace and thought to myself, ‘This is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.’ And I did not even know who she was, or what her name was, at the time.”
Majority of us don’t believe on concept of love at first sight and term it as ‘aisa bas filmo me hota he’. Here we see the real love at first sight. Its true this happens in the films but this story is far more than that, it’s a film itself, a real-life film. So, let’s step into the real film adding on to this meet/introduction story.
The rising action – into Pankaj Tripathi – Mridula love story:
Back into the 90’s, these days were not easy for a couples to communicate as we experience as of now. So only means of contact was via writing the letters.
Purportedly, in a span of five months Pankaj use to visit his sister’s house at least once, so that would give them a chance to spend quality of the time together. Adding on to this Mridula says “I would leave for school in the morning and could meet him only after dinner. That was our time. We would sit and talk, sometimes till early morning. We both loved reading and had so much to talk about the books, novels, characters, stories, and the writers.”
Mridula- Breaking up with someone else to marry Pankaj:
Writing letters and visiting the Mridula’s house continued the Pankaj Tripathi – Mridula love story, for almost eight years. Soon the time came, this was the time when her parents found a marriage alliance for Mridula.
Finally, the time came Mridula says, “Pankaj confessed my brother and sister-in-law to the prospective groom’s place. He came and told me that it was a good match for me and I would surely get much of ‘Bhautik Sukh.’ I did not know so much Hindi back then and asked what that meant, and he said ‘material happiness.’ That’s when I felt that I was losing something very precious.”
After that Pankaj had to leave the place with aching heart. As because he needs to go at National School of Drama (NSD) to study. So, while in this span Mridula came up with an idea to break her marriage with someone else to marry Pankaj, Mridula says, “Only I know the lengths that I’d gone to break that marriage. And now the most important dilemma was communicating this news to Pankaj.”
After few days, on 24 December finally Pankaj spoke with all members of the family and Mridula just a day before her birthday. After the long wait for months, they got a chance to speak with each other. She says, “He wished me, and I reminded him that it was the next day. I tried really hard to convey my feelings to him, but he didn’t understand. It took a long explanation for him to finally get the drift.”
Era of Long-distance relationship:
Now a days the long-distance relationships seem quite hard. And dating is quite common for today’s generation. Back then, dating was a peculiar among the society and people. But the love finds it way out from amidst condition, they managed to keep their love and spark alive in their long-distance relationship. The only means to keep their love alive was via letters, that too once in 10 days and the phone call- a fixed at fixed time around 8:00 PM.
Happy starting – Pankaj and Mridula finally got married:
After the 12 years of courtship and lots for struggle, the couple Pankaj and Mridula finally got married on 15 January 2004. Mridula being the Brahmin sister of Pankaj’s brother-in-law, it was against their caste to marry in a family. Yet, they sorted it out and have been happily married for 17 years now and still counting. That’s the reasons I said this story is far more than a story of film. A perfect story, love at first sight-tragedy-struggles and a happy ending towards new journey.
Don’t let Instagram fashion influencers fool you!
No doubt, fashion has become a huge part of everyone’s life. It has been decades now, but the trends of fashion are still ongoing, nobody can ever get bored of fashion style and trends. Fashion is incredibly important to emerge the personality of a person. But everything has two sides “pros & cons” and it applies to fashion as well.
There are many mistakes people do while styling & here is a list of fashion mistakes you should avoid –
Sometimes less is really more. Over accessorizing doesn’t look good on anybody. Accessories are great but when you wear them all at once, it can get overwhelming. It is also very much important to wear the right accessory to the right occasion. Always make sure you choose a correct accessory to complete your outfit.
This vintage jewellery store is the first of its kind in India. Celebrities from Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Kajol and Kiara Advani are regular patrons of the store.
Wearing The Wrong Size Clothes-
Do not wear clothes of the wrong size, it is essential to wear what fits your body. Wrong size clothes can make you look tacky. And it is not appropriate to wear clothes that does not flatter your figure. Being more involved in fashion, what you wear and how you wear is important.
Bags play an essential role in every woman’s life. They create a statement of their own, but do not purchase a oversized bags, otherwise these bags will take attention away from you and it might seem that the bag is carrying you. The type of bag you choose has the power to make you or break your look.
Sunglasses can complete the absolute look of a person. But the fame your sunglasses must be in proportion to your face size. Oversized sunglasses might look extremely odd and trashy. Choose sunglasses that feel comfortable, these sunglasses will overwhelm your face.
Overlaying Of Powder-
Do not over do the powder on your face while makeup. It’s a translucent powder but it doesn’t mean it’s invisible. Apply a small amount of powder to set your base and do not make your skin look trashy. If you cover the makeup with powder it can look more heavy.
Choose the balance color for your outfit. Color does play an important role in our life. Mismatched Color would give you the worst look. Color makes the difference since it makes life not only meaningful but also beautiful. So choose your color wisely.No matter what patterns you’re wearing, the key is to understand the style.
Too Many Coats Of Mascara-
Do not apply too many coats of mascara to your lashes. This can make your lashes look too heavy. Two coats on each lash line is fine, overcoating is where you will mess up your eyeslashes and it can turn your whole look worst. The more coats you apply, the more likely you will get a dull look.
Big Bold Prints-
Big bold prints will definitely take away attention from you. Small prints would define your body shape and keep the whole look balanced and stylish. Big bold prints can be a bit distracting.
