Some Lesser Known Facts About Mridula Tripathi

  • Mridula Tripathi is a former Indian teacher, and as of 2022, she manages the work schedule of her husband, Pankaj Tripathi.
  • After completing her post-graduation, she wanted to pursue M.Phil and PhD. [4]YouTube – YourStory
  • On 24 May 1993, Mridula met Pankaj at her brother’s wedding with Pankaj’s sister. During an interview, while sharing the memories of their first meeting, Mridula said,

    It was my elder brother’s Tilak (engagement ceremony). I was on my way to a tiny room on the terrace to get dressed when this boy with hazel eyes, brown hair and a beard crossed me. Those eyes would go on to follow me during the entire function.”

    When they met for the first time, Mridula was studying in class 9, while Pankaj was in class 12. Soon, they became friends and fell in love with each other. During an interview, Pankaj talked about his first meeting with Mridula. He said,

    My sister was getting married. But her in-laws wanted to get a toilet built before my sister went there. This was long before ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’. My friend went to her in-laws’ house to see what repair work was being done. He saw a girl there and came and told me about her. He said that she is very beautiful. Walks like a deer. I heard his compliments and was lost. I married her after 11 years. We both just used to see each other from 1993 to 2004. At that time I used to go to drama school. Those times were very different to me because there were no mobile phones at that time. The letter could not be written because it seemed that anyone in the house could open it and read it. When I went to NSD, there was a phone and there was a landline in her house. We decided to talk everyday at 7.30 am and at 8:00 pm.”

  • After completing post-graduation, Mridula shifted from Kolkata to Delhi, where she got a job as a teacher. At that time, Pankaj was at the National School of Delhi. In a TV show, Pankaj shared that while he was staying in the boys’ hostel, Mridula used to live with him secretly. [5]YouTube – SET India
  • In an interview, Mridula shared that her parents were unaware of her relationship with Pankaj. Once, when her parents were looking for a suitable boy for Mridula’s marriage, Pankaj accompanied Mridula’s brother to the prospective groom’s house. During an interview, while sharing the incident, Mridula said,

    Pankaj accompanied my brother and sister-in-law to the prospective groom’s place. He came and told me that it was a good match for me and I would surely get much of ‘bhautik sukh.’ I did not know so much Hindi back then and asked what that meant, and he said ‘material happiness.’ That’s when I felt that I was losing something very precious. Only I know the lengths that I’d gone to break that marriage. And now the most important dilemma was communicating this news to Pankaj.”

  • After getting married, the couple moved to Mumbai from Delhi as Pankaj wanted to make a career in Hindi films. At that time, Mridula got a job as a teacher in Mumbai, and Pankaj gave auditions for Hindi films. He used to stay home and do the household chores. In many interviews, Pankaj has praised his wife for helping him financially in his struggling days. He said,

    If you ask me about my struggle, I don’t have any sad details like sleeping on a footpath or starving for days. That’s because my wife, Mridula, had taken over the entire responsibility of the house. In fact, I tell everyone that she is the man of the house.”

  • Mridula is an ardent devotee of Lord Ganesha.
