Panin has been living in Spain for several years. Abroad, the artist is trying to build a career from scratch. In Russia, the star “Zhmurok” is known not so much for roles as for scandalous statements. He often speaks negatively about colleagues. For example, recently the actor expressed confidence that Vyacheslav Manucharov is not worthy of high awards, since he did not do anything outstanding.
“Manucharov, who did not play almost a single high-profile role, all the time wanted to be noticed. Artists told me how he won the title of Honored Artist for himself. I almost ran with papers to the right people in order to lick the right place in time, so that this piece of paper would be signed and sent to where the titles are claimed, ”said the 45-year-old actor in an interview with Radio Chicago.
