“Jaideep Bhaiya reached out to me after watching my performance in The Freelancer, and it was one of the first compliments I received for the series. It wasn’t just special because people in the industry were recognizing me, but also because it came from Jaideep Bhaiya. We both come from the same city in Haryana, Rohtak. When he said, ‘Mahara Haryana Ka Chora Chale Phaad Raha Hai’ (Our Haryana boy is rocking it), it made me feel really proud. His words are stuck in my heart, motivating me to do my best in life and not only make my state proud but also my country in the future,” shared Navneet.
In The Freelancer, Navneet played the role of Mohsin Fazal opposite Kashmira Pardeshi aka Aliya Khan. The two-part action thriller series centered on Aliya’s quest for escape amid challenging conditions, featuring stellar performances by Mohit Raina, Kashmira Pardeshi, and Anupam Kher.
