Actor Narendra Jha, known for his work in films like Raees, Haider and Kaabil among others, passed away on March 14. He was 55. He was recently seen in the role of Musa Bhai in Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees (2017).
Born in Madhubani, Bihar, the actor was prolific on both the mediums — TV and films. Some of his important films included Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil and Mohenjo Daro and Ghayal Once Again among others. Jha was working in a film with Sangram Singh that is yet to release. He was also a part of Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhas’s ambitious project, Saaho.
His colleagues were shocked by his sudden demise. Sonu Sood tweeted, “That’s so sad. He was a lovely human being. May his soul rest in peace.” Rahul Dholakia, who directed Raees, tweeted: “Gosh !! Tragic. Shocking. Musa bhai no more ?? #RIPNarendraJha”. Hansal Mehta wrote on social media, : “What a shocker! Narendra Jha? This profession is truly a killer.”
