Pankaj shared that he prefers Hindi cinema as he is more comfortable with Hindi. Pankaj added that he has rejected several offers from regional cinema as he believes he won't be able to do justice to those films.
Pankaj said, "While language is not a barrier for me, I prefer Hindi cinema. It's because I am comfortable with Hindi, main uss language ko samajhta hoon, uski bhavnaon ko, nuances ko behtar samajhta hoon (I understand the language better, I understand its emotions and nuances better)."
He further added, "Forget Hollywood, I get offers from Telugu and Malayalam filmmakers but I feel I won't be able to do justice to those films because I won't be able to speak the language.”
