“Duniya me bohot saare logo se mile hai, aisi paristhiti me rahe hai (I have met many people, I have lived in many situations). I have seen that world. So, it is all an experience of life. Life taught me a lot. So, it all comes from the learnings,” Tripathi mentioned when requested about how he makes his character on the script come alive on display.

His movie Mimi is a comedy-drama that explores the idea of surrogacy in a lighthearted method. We requested the actor how a comedy movie with a message can affect the viewers, in response to which, Tripathi said that watching a comedy movie is like meditating. He mentioned comedy movies make an affect on individuals’s minds effortlessly.
“I feel when you are saying something through humour or comedy, the impact is larger and successful because it is like meditation. The purpose of meditation is to lose oneself in nothingness. To bring ourselves in a state where we have no thoughts. And for any human, it is difficult to come into such a zone because every one of us is a thinking individual. We have multiple thoughts going on in our minds. When you meditate for a year, you can zero down to only maybe two moments when you could put yourself in the zone of nothing. In comedy, when you watch the film (or series) and laugh out loud, for those 10 seconds, your brain has no other thought but happiness. No EMI pressure, no career issues and no complexities of any sort. In a comedy film, if we can give 10 such laughter moments, we are giving the audience 10 meditative moments. That elevates the message of the film,” he expressed with a disclaimer saying, “this is my logic.”
He additionally added, “Your mental calmness increases when you watch a comedy film. In that space, when the filmmaker is trying to put across a poignant statement or message, it creates a lasting impression. Films are a strong medium, why waste it only on entertainment. If you can convey a message in a this way then why not?”
