Actor Narendra Jha, who credits Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider for bringing respectability and film offers to him, says his role in Mohenjo Daro was very challenging.
“The character in the film is such that it is kind of a challenge to myself. When I accepted the role, I didn’t realise it. When you see my character in ‘Mohenjo Daro’, you realise how much I must have worked hard on my costume and other things,” Narendra said at the music launch of his other film ‘My Father Iqbal’.
“It is definitely an interesting film for me,” Narendra added. The actor feels the Ashutosh Gowariker directorial will be like another feather in the cap for him after ‘Haider’.
“Working with a director like Ashutosh Gowariker and with actors like Hrithik, is definitely a pleasure. But as far as the turning point is concerned, the turning point has already happened (‘Haider’).”
“My career’s high point was ‘Haider’. It brought respectability in my career and some good offers too. ‘Haider’, in a way, established me as an interesting and, like they say, a commendable actor,” he added.
Narendra had played Shahid Kapoor’s father in the critically acclaimed film ‘Haider’. Later, he was seen in films like ‘Shorgul’ and ‘Ghayal Once Again’. He will also be seen in ‘Kaabil’, which again stars Hrithik, and in Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’.
Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro is a box office clash with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom. Which one will audience and box office choose this Independence Day, with both their release date being August 12 will be told with time. While Rustom stars Ileana D’Cruz and Esha Gupta besides Akshay; Mohenjo Daro is the Bollywood debut of Pooja Hegde. However, Akshay’s film is a much smaller film than Hrithik’s.
