Pankaj has also spoken out the roles he has played during his career, saying: “Up until now, I just went with the flow.
“Whatever role came my way, I used to look at the scope and do it.”
He said: “I never looked at the age of the character. In both Nil Battey Sannata and Gurgaon, the roles were of a father, but they are completely different characters. I thought I could look at it as a challenge.
“If I could play a character who wasn’t my age and look authentic, it would be great. There are no prosthetics.
“I just changed my voice and body language. In Bareilly ki Barfi, Seema Pahwa is around 12 to 14 years elder and played my wife, but no one noticed.
“Thankfully, in Newton I play someone my age, and hopefully I’ll get more age-appropriate roles from now on.”
