Narendra Jha was a very well known name in the world of TV, theater and cinema. In this fierce business age, he was able to stabilize himself only and only with his ability. Having already suffered heart attacks twice in personal life, Narendra could not handle himself for the third time. After all, actor Narendra, who has been struggling with his body for a long time, breathed his last on March 14.
Narendra, who has ventured into films since the beginning of the 21st century, has made his identity among the audience by playing many unique characters. Born in Madhubani, Bihar, Narendra worked in many regional films including Yun to Hindi but Hilal Mir played in director Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Haider, Moosa Bhai in Rahul Dholakia’s film Raees, Raj Bansal in Ghayal Vans Again, and TV The character of Jinnah, the father of Pakistan, played in the serial ‘Constitution’, which makes him different and diversified from others. Is
It is worth mentioning that before the constitution, he played the character of Habibur Rahman in the film Fantus and Shyal Benegal’s Dream Project ‘Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: The Last Hero’. His character Shyam Benegal liked it so much that even today Shyam used to call him as Habib.
When Narendra, who had a desire to go to civil services, got the taste of TV, he moved towards acting. He forgot the old dream of going to civil services. It can be said that the revolution of television had turned them towards this. In 1992, Shriram reached Mumbai to pursue a struggle like a diploma in acting from the Center for Art and Culture.
Break-Down Of The Cycle
Narendra used to tell that by reaching Mumbai, he first understood the concept of breaking the cycle of film world like Abhimanyu. In the first few years, he joined the world of TV while modeling. Actors take the first step towards modeling because this field gives an opportunity to serve in Mumbai. The same coincidence also happened with Narendra.
Actors like Dino Mario, Arjun Rampal were also trying their hands in the field of modeling at the same time as Jha was entering the modeling world. Narendra, who made a mark on the small screen with his voice and acting in serials like Captain’s House, Amrapali, Chuchna Hai Akash, Face, Ek Ghar Banega, Shanti, surprised the audience by coming up with the 2003 Imtiaz Punjabi comedy film Funtus. .
His portrayal of the 10th-century king is still fresh in the memories of that generation, which was against the character Chindi Chor of the same film. After this, he started working with good characters in Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose: The Last Hero, Telugu film Chhatrapati and Hindi film Kachcha Sad.
Even though Narendra had now established himself in the world of film and TV, but the audience had not yet started to sit in his eyes. After playing the character of Quaid-e-Azam: Muhammad Ali Jinnah in the highly ambitious serial ‘Constitution’ of Rajya Sabha TV in 2014, he got a permanent place in the heart of the audience.
Later, he was established as Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Haider’s doctor Hilal Mir and the film Raees as Moses Bhai and also as an intense actor. Even though his film journey has not been much longer, but it was not as effective as it was in the fate of other actors like him.
The dialogue of Dr. Hilal Mir in bars with Irrfan Khan in the role of Ruhadar in the film Haider – ‘Tell him to take my pleasure, to my brother, fired bullets in both his eyes, the eyes that inflicted on his mother Were, the eyes that made him a gimmick, ‘still fresh in the minds of the audience. There are very few supporting actors who can establish themselves even after working with big stars. Narendra succeeded in doing so.
It was also because he was a well-read actor. He took special care of the theme and character of the films he selected.
Understanding The Traditions
Narendra, who is already married and in love with Pankaja Thakur, the mother of a child, will also be counted among the actors who stand against the orthodox traditions. Significantly, Pankaja has been the former CEO of the Censor Board. And the love story of both of them remained very secret.
Narendra, who has made a strong presence in Hindi cinema, throughout his film life, besides his own acting, kept focusing on discipline, good grip on language, etc. This is what makes them different from others. That is why, from Haider to our unfinished story, Force-2, Shorghul, Kaabil and the recent film Viram, his character is seen and his language also attracts the attention of the audience.
The sudden departure of such a hard-working and disciplined actor has left Hindi cinema vacant. If he had lived, he would have done many more characters that were needed by both the audience and the cinema.
