Pankaj told India Today, 

"My wife Mridula will be debuting with Sherdil. She has done one scene in the film. Director Srijit Mukerjee, who has a Bengali connection with my wife, asked her to come on the sets and promised to give her one scene."

Pankaj further added that, she said yes right away because she got to wear a lovely Bengali saree in the film. It was a simple bribe, and she didn't even get paid.

Pankaj recently made his appearance at IIFA Awards which was held in Abu Dhabi. During the event, Pankaj was asked if his daughter Aashi Tripathi, who accompanied him at the award show, is interested in acting as well. He responded that she has no aspirations to enter Bollywood as of yet. She is studying now. He also asserted that he haven't yet glimpsed the future, but he will when the moment arises.

For the unversed, Pankaj and Mridula met at a wedding in 1993, while they were still in high school. The couple married in January 2004, and their daughter Aashi was born in 2006.

Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga, which will be released on June 24, is based on true events that occurred in the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve. The film, directed by Srijit Mukherji, also features Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta.
