Pankaj Tripathi and Mridula Tripathi’s love story
On 24 May 1993, Mridula first met Pankaj at the wedding of her elder brother, who was married to Pankaj Tripathi’s sister. Sharing the memories in an interview, he said,
It was the tilak (engagement ceremony) of my elder brother. I was going to a small room on the terrace to get dressed when this guy with brown eyes, brown hair and a beard appeared in front of me. Those eyes would follow me throughout the ceremony.
At that time Mridula was in 9th class and Pankaj was in 12th class. Then they became friends and soon they fell in love with each other. In an interview, when Pankaj was asked about his first meeting with Mridula, he said,
My sister was getting married. But before my sister went there, her in-laws wanted to get the toilet constructed. This was long before Toilet Ek Prem Katha. My friend had gone to her in-laws house to see what the repair work was going on. He saw a girl there and came and told me about her. He said she is very beautiful. Walks like a deer. I listened to his praise and was lost. I married her after 11 years. We both used to see each other only from 1993 to 2004. At that time I used to go to drama school. Those times were very different for me because there were no mobile phones then. The letter could not be written as it appeared that anyone in the house could open it and read it. When I went to NSD, there was a phone in their house and a landline. We decided that we would talk every day at 7.30 am and at 8 pm.
After completing her studies, Mridula moved from Kolkata to Delhi to work as a teacher. At that time Pankaj was also in Delhi to pursue an acting course at the National School of Drama. In an interview, Mridula shared that her parents were once looking for a groom for her, unaware of her relationship with Pankaj Tripathi. At that time Pankaj also went to the house of the future groom with his sister and brother-in-law. Talking about this in an interview, Mridula said,
Pankaj went to the house of the prospective groom with my brother and sister-in-law. He came and told me that it was a good match for me and I would definitely get ‘material happiness’. I didn’t know that much Hindi at that time and asked what it meant, and he said ‘material happiness.’ That’s when I felt that I was missing something very valuable. Only I know to what extent I had to go to break that marriage. And now the biggest dilemma was to break the news to Pankaj.
After dating for a few years, the two got married in 2004.
They then moved to Mumbai as Pankaj wanted to pursue a career in acting. During the days of Pankaj’s struggle, Mridula used to earn money and Pankaj used to cook at home. Pankaj has praised his wife many times for always supporting him. In one of his interviews he said,
If you ask me about my struggle, I don’t have any sad details like sleeping on the pavement or going hungry for days. This is because my wife Mridula took care of the entire responsibility of the house. In fact, I tell everyone that he is the man of the house.
