With Narendra Jetley in my Office

If my memory is not failing me, the year must have been 2010. Narendra Jetley was a students of Batch No. 32. [ Technically he is not a student of VIDUR ACTING INSTITUTE ].

I still remember his first few tentative baby – steps in the class. Confused but eager to correct himself ………… doubtful but always ready to remove doubts …………………. prone to mistakes but always willing to make amends. It was a normal journey of a budding actor. He, at that time, was just an ephemeral, inconsequential drop of water in the seamless, endless ocean of FINE ARTS.

It has been 5 years now. And if I look back and try to analyse, the same ephemeral, inconsequential drop of water has miraculously metamorphosed as an immortal, precious pearl.

And let me make it clear. It is his personal victory. All his accomplishments are fruits of his own tireless efforts. No acting trainer or acting institute can make that kind of transformation in any actor.

Just look at his body of work and variety of roles, which he essayed in his ads.



In between he has done variety of roles in few films also. It’s just a start. His zenith has yet to come.

In these 5 years, Narendra Jetley worked hard and made his mark. He had no connections of any kind in the world of films. But he made his place in the industry with sheer grit, tenacity and will power.

Today when I look back and watch his growth an a thinking actor, I feel so proud.

I see a very bright future for him and wish him all the best.
