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.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 a commendable actor,” he added.
He will also be seen in Kaabil and in Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees.
