Kranti Prakash Jha’s journey in Bollywood has been set by substantial roles in films like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) and Batla House (2019). Yet, actor Kranti Prakash Jha concedes that OTT has redefined things for him. His role of Vijay Singh in the 2020 crime show Raktanchal won him praise across the board.
“I am grateful to the web space. Getting a role like Vijay Singh was huge. It has been a defining moment for me and I love the fact that my part and the series were received with so much love. I never expected that,” says Jha. He adds that the project helped him hone his skills. “Raktanchal helped me have a better understanding of my craft. I’m grateful to the makers and the web space for helping me become a better actor,” he says.
Jha worked with Sushant Singh Rajput during MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, and he recalls that time and the late actor fondly. “That experience is divine and he is omnipresent even today,” says the actor, as he proceeds to discuss overcoming the difficult times.
“Highs and lows are part of life. It’s important to talk about your issues with someone you are comfortable with. I have also faced challenges and my mother, family and friends stood by me and were my pillars of strength. What’s destined to happen will happen and you can just have the control on yourself to know how to react to a situation. We must learn to respond, and not react immediately,” shares the 32-year-old.
