Shweta Tripathi

Over the last few years, Shweta Tripathi has given us some very memorable performances. Be it Shaalu in Masaan who loves reading poetry and shayari or nerdy Golu who ends up winning college elections in Mirzapur, her performances are praise-worthy. As the actress turns 35 years old today, we look at seven of her most fascinating performances:

1. Masaan

Directed by Neeraj Ghaywan, Masaan follows two seemingly separate stories that eventually converge at the ghats of Banaras. One of these stories features a lower caste boy named Deepak (played by Vicky Kaushal), who family works at the cremation ghat, hopelessly in love with an upper-caste girl named Shaalu (Shweta Tripathi) who loves reading Hindi poetry and shayaris. Even when she gets to know the reality, her love and decision to be with Deepak stays firm but the life had other plans.

Watch Shweta Tripathi bringing to screen Golu, a nerd who also enjoys diving deep in erotica. While she is someone who would stay away from fuss, she also goes on and winning college elections. And, there will be more to her character in season 2 of the series.
