Tripti Nadkar, hailing from a family of directors and filmmakers, stepped into the world of entertainment at the tender age of two. Her early career saw her featured in advertisements for prominent brands. This early success paved the way for modeling assignments and roles in documentaries.
At the age of eight, Tripti made her debut in Marathi cinema, establishing her presence in Gujarati and Marathi films before venturing into Nepali movies. Her Nepali film journey commenced with “Kusume Rumal” at the age of fifteen, quickly gaining popularity with hits like “Samjhana,” “Koseli,” and “Lahure.” Notably, director Tulsi Ghimire, also Tripti’s uncle, played a pivotal role in introducing her to Nepali cinema.
Taking a break after the Nepali film “Koseli,” Tripti dedicated nearly two decades to being a full-time housewife and mother. Her decision to retire from acting stemmed from a desire to prioritize family. During this break, she engaged in learning and teaching dance while raising her two sons. Tripti’s elder son now manages a dance institute in Mumbai, showcasing her influence on the next generation.
Tripti’s return to acting was sparked by the script of “Aamako Kakh,” presented to her despite her initial decision to avoid future film projects. This marked her comeback to the industry, driven by the audience’s love and appreciation.
Despite being a proficient Nepali actress, Tripti faced challenges in speaking Nepali fluently, owing to her Hindi and Marathi accents. This linguistic difference led to her films being dubbed by Bharati from “Kusume Rumal” to “Koseli.”
Some intriguing facets of Tripti’s life include her mother Mayadevi acting alongside her in films like “Kusume Rumal” and “Samjhana,” as well as her father’s role in “Samjhana” as a hospital doctor.
