(G.N.S) DT.14 In yet another unfortunate news for the film fraternity, actor Narendra Jha, who played the character of Musa Bhai in Shah Rukh Khan starrer "Raees", breathed his last on Wednesday morning. The actor gave some brilliant performances in recent films like "Haider", "Raees", "Kaabil" to name a few.

Tisca Chopra, who worked with Jha in Ghayal Once Again (2016), was totally shocked by the actor's demise. He sat with me on the grass and we ate dinner together from one plate. "Things were fine. Around 4 am today, he felt a chest pain so we took him to a nearby hospital, but everything was over by then", IANS quoted Lakshman Singh as saying. But he came to limelight with his role as Dr Hilal Meer, Shahid Kapoor's on-screen dad in Haider.

Narendra Jha was born in Bihar on September 2, 1962. The Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Gupta wrote on Twitter: 'I refuse to accept it. "Narendra Jha? This profession is truly a killer". And now I'm hearing he passed away this morning.

May his soul rest in peace! Such a splendid actor and a marvellous human being. The actor had shot most of his parts for both the films, which means the two movies will go down as his last work in the Indian film industry.

"Totally shocked to hear of the passing of co-star in #GhayalOnceAgain. fine person, fine actor". While he has been a part of many big-ticket films, including "Raees" and "Kaabil", his last outings - Salman Khan's "Race 3" and Prabhas-starrer "Saaho" - are yet to release.
