Pankaj Tripathi On Covid Crisis: ‘Those Of Us Who Have Power And Potential Must Look Out For Others’
These are tough times. This pandemic has crippled life and took away many things we used to take for granted. But it has definitely taught us the value of human relationships. As said, bad times don’t last forever, this shall too pass. Till then, we all must be patient, take care of each other, help the less fortunate, do our part in fighting the virus by staying home and cooperating with the authorities.
Actor Pankaj Tripathi also feels that those who have power and potential must take up the duty of looking out for others more than ever today. He addressed the subject through an audio clip on social media.
“It’s time for us to be selfless and help anyone who looks like they’re in need of it. Trust me, doing this will feel good. Care is always welcome, especially in times of crisis. A book I read recently describes how even in the presence of a powerful king in the jungle — which is the lion — all the inhabitants of the forest have to look out for themselves,” said Pankaj.
“In human society, it’s not the same. Those of us who have power and potential must take up the duty of looking out for others who need us more than ever today,” he further added.
This is the world’s worst crisis since World War II. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
On the work front Pankaj Tripathi’s much-hyped “83” is all set for release. The film narrates the story of India’s first cricket World Cup victory in 1983. Tripathi plays the team’s manager Man Singh in the film that stars Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, captain of the Indian team.
He will also be seen alongside Akshay Kumar in the film “Bachchan Pandey”. The Farhad Samji directorial film also stars Arshad Warsi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Kriti Sanon and Prateik Babbar.
