As per reports, the actor was paid 10 crore for his stint as Pankaj Tripathi in Mirzapur Season 2. However, this is much higher than what he was paid for his first ever screen appearance.

Only 1700 Rs – Pankaj Tripathi’s First Pay!

The Mirzapur 3 actor was paid only Rs 1700 for a brief TV stint at the beginning of his career. His breakthrough came around with Anurag Kashyap‘s Gangs Of Wasseypur. For Mirzapur season 2, the actor was paid 58823 times higher than his first paycheck.

Talking about the money and remunerations, the actor, in one of his interviews with ANI, once said, “One should never get into this profession only for money and fame. First, understand why you want to come here ( in the film industry).. understand your love and your needs. Kaam dil se karoge paisa zarur miljaega life me (Money will eventually come to you at one point). I still remember my first paycheck was of Rs 1700 for a brief TV stint.”

Well, from earning Rs 1700 for a TV show to earning 10+ crore for Mirzapur Season 3, Pankaj Tripathi surely has come a long way in motivating others!
