Nine years after 'Gangs of Wasseypur', Nawazuddin-Pankaj reunite for ad shoot; Manoj aka Sardar films his portion separately

'Gangs of Wasseypur' trio reunites for an ad

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi and Manoj Bajpayee

Pankaj Tripathi is usually wary of brand endorsements, finding little joy in facing the camera for a 30-second ad. But he was uncharacteristically excited when an endorsement for a mustard oil brand came his way. Reason — it was to reunite him with his 'Gangs of Wasseypur' (2012) co-stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Manoj Bajpayee. The actor shot for the ad with Siddiqui at a Mumbai studio in March.

A source from the production reveals, “Nawazuddin and Pankaj were excited to face the camera together after a long time. The two could not stop reminiscing about working on 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. The shoot, conducted with a slim team of 30 and in compliance with the safety norms, was wrapped up in a day.” Unfortunately, Bajpayee — who fronted the first edition of Anurag Kashyap’s crime drama as Sardar Khan — could not join the duo on the set as he was down with Covid-19 at the time. The source adds, “After recovering, Manoj shot his portion separately against a green screen at home. The ad will be released soon.”
