"OMG 2" Actor Pankaj Tripathi's Father Pandit Banaras Tiwari Passes Away at 99; Last Rites to be Held Today

Renowned actor Pankaj Tripathi, known for his versatile roles in Bollywood and web series, is mourning the loss of his father, Pandit Banaras Tiwari, who passed away on Monday at the age of 99. The official statement released on behalf of Pankaj Tripathi and his family confirmed the sad news and stated that the last rites will be conducted on the same day in the presence of close family members.

Pankaj Tripathi has reportedly left for his village in Gopalganj to be with his family during this difficult time. The statement shared, “It’s with a heavy heart to confirm that Pankaj Tripathi’s father, Pandit Banaras Tiwari is no more. He lived a wholesome life of 99 years. His last rites will be performed today amongst his close family. Pankaj Tripathi is currently on his way to his village in Gopalganj.”

In an earlier interview this month, the actor shared a touching insight into his father’s perspective on his acting career. Pankaj Tripathi revealed, “He is not too proud of my achievements. My father does not even know what and how I do in cinema. To date, he has not seen how a movie theatre looks from the inside. He sees my work if someone shows him on their computer or on the television, which was recently installed at my house.”

Pankaj Tripathi has garnered immense appreciation for his roles in various films such as “Kaagaz,” “Mimi,” “Bunty Aur Babli 2,” and “83.” However, he rose to prominence with his portrayal of the character “Kaleen Bhaiyya” in the Amazon Prime web series “Mirzapur.”

His recent film release, “OMG 2,” co-starring Akshay Kumar and Yami Gautam, has been successful at the box office, crossing the ₹100 crore mark. Despite his professional commitments, Pankaj Tripathi is taking time to be with his family and bid a final farewell to his beloved father.

The entertainment industry and his fans extend their heartfelt condolences to Pankaj Tripathi and his family during this period of mourning.
