In an interview with The Indian Express, Pankaj criticized the industry for taking too long to appreciate the brilliance of Irrfan Khan, whom he considers to be the only truly authentic actor in the industry.

Pankaj praised Irrfan Khan’s acting abilities, stating that actors should avoid watching films to prevent themselves from mimicking others.

The third season of “Panchayat,” in which Pankaj Jha stars, has been well received by audiences and is currently available for streaming on Prime Video India. His dedication to his craft and ability to bring depth to his characters have solidified Pankaj Jha as a talented and respected actor in the industry.
