Haider, Raees Actor Narendra Jha dies from heart attack

Known for his work in films like Haider, Raees and Ghayal Once Again among many others, actor Narendra Jha passed away at the age of 55, after suffering from a major heart attack on Wednesday. He was an alumni of Jawaharlal Nehru Unviversity, Delhi, and later traveled to Mumbai because he wanted to become an actor. "He suffered a massive heart attack".

"He had no health issues and last night he was fine. Things were fine. Around 4am today, he felt a chest pain so we took him to a nearby hospital, but everything was over by then", Lakshman Singh, the driver said. In Haider, he essayed the role of Dr Hilal Meer and in Hrithik Roshan-starrer "Kaabil", he portrayed Police Inspector Chaubey.

Jha was a versatile actor and had worked in several Bollywood blockbusters. Born in Madhubani, Bihar, the actor was prolific on both the mediums - TV and films.

Narendra began his small screen journey with Mandira Bedi's Shanti and went on to model in TV ads.

CINTAA tweeted confirming the news of the actor's death this morning.

He was reportedly set to star in Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor's "Saaho", which is likely to release this year.

Sanjay Gupta, who directed Jha in Kaabil, tweeted, "I refuse to accept it".

The director of Raees, Rahul Dholakia, wrote on twitter about his shock at the sudden demise of the actor. Dear Narendra Jhan, rest in peace!

"Gosh! Tragic. Shocking. Musa bhai no more??"
