“I Don’t Like Dost, Chacha, Bhateja Roles Anymore”: Jatin Sarna admits rejecting Tiger 3, Bachchan Pandey and many more

Jatin Sarna became a known actor because of his outstanding performance in Sacred Games. The actor recently admitted rejecting movies like Tiger 3, Bachchan Pandey and many more.

In an interaction with ‘The Human Ping’, the host asked Jatin Sarna to recall one moment where he had tears of joy and tears of disappointment.

 Mr. Jatin recalls the day when he was heartbroken as he lost a role in Akshay Kumar’s Airlift. “I’m a huge Akshay Kumar fan. When I was cast for the role, I was very excited and my family was like this is it! But one day I realised that baat bigad Gayi hai. I kept calling them, but there was no response. I went to meet the director Raja Menon, and I found out that they have already started shooting. They dropped me and went with a known face.” says Jatin.

He was replaced by actor Purab Kohli, after watching ‘Airlift’, “My disappointment turned into relief” said Jatin Sarna. The actor also added, “I felt better that it didn’t happen, it was not an exciting role anyway.” Jatin who is known for his acting in ‘Sacred Games’ has disclosed that he has turned down a role in Akshay Kumar’s forthcoming comedy film ‘Bachchan Pandey’.

As per Jatin, the role which was offered to him for Bachchan Pandey didn’t excite him not just that he also rejected 12 other films along with a role in Salman Khan’s much-anticipated movie Tiger 3.

“I have rejected 12 films. I was offered Tiger 3, Ahmed Khan’s directorial with Aditya Roy Kapoor. I don’t like dost, chacha, bhateja roles anymore. Now just sharing screen space with big actors is not important for me. I want to work with all the stars, but it has to be something substantial,” declares Jatin Sarna.

Meanwhile, Jatin has acted in a few television series like Zindagi Dot Com, Faujji…The Iron Man and Kyunki Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai, have done more than 25 theatre plays.

Jatin’s performance in sports drama 83, was widely admired as he played the character of Kabir Khan.
