Pankaj Tripathi pens a letter to his 25-year-old self: Do good things, but also make mistakes

Actor Pankaj Tripathi got candid about the advice he'd give to his 25-year-old self.

"I’d only tell him that continue doing what you are doing. Do good things, but also make mistakes. That’s where you learn. 25 years back, I was 23 and in Patna. Though I was never a man of great planning, I was a sincere guy who barely made mistakes even at 23. We Biharis think twice before doing things, isn’t it? [laughs]

Yes, I was inexperienced but only about my craft because one cannot go into the depths of it at that age. We see things only on the surface. I had started my acting journey and believed I’m great swimmer. Later I realised I might tend to get drowned more than staying afloat. Only I can learn from my mistakes [gets prompted by wife Mridula Tripathi]. My wife says I don’t even do that!
