The director of the film Andy Serkis has been full of praise of the actor, saying his mature performances have made Mowgli a must watch.

He was quoted as saying:

"We are incredibly lucky to have Rohan at the center of the story. He is a young age boy playing a very complex adult role and he is utterly brilliant."

High praise indeed for the young boy from NewYork, who started his career from Jack and Jill, and was the co-lead opposite Jason Bateman in the 2013 comedy Bad Words. He has also been a part of series Homeland where his performance opposite Damian Lewis was severely acclaimed.   

The young actor has come a long way from his humble beginnings to Hollywood and his parents are one of the reasons for his success. 

Parents Support Bears Fruition, Proud of Their Son

Rohan was born to parents of Indian descent in NewYork city. Both of his parents hail from IT field and Hollywood seemed a long shot they never imagined. 

However, the young actor entered the industry when he was playing baseball in the Brooklyn borough with his friends in front of parents.

And one of the moms of the boys playing was a casting director for Adam Sandler. She suggested the Chand family to audition for the role of Gary in Jack And Jill. Initially reluctant about the idea, his parents claimed that Rohan even did not know how to read, and he was just 6 years of age.

However, Rohan, who celebrates his birthday on 23 July, did an audition for the role and the rest is history.

The young age actor has never looked back after Jack And Jill and been wowing the audience with his brilliant acting skills. 

One person who the actor has yet to impress is his younger sister. The actor said in 2014 had been reminding him of his shortcomings and suggested where he could have done better. 

His parents, however, are all but praise for their young son. His father in 2013 was effusive with praise for his son, who he said was not neglecting his studies despite his increasingly busy schedule. 

Flanked by supportive parents and an honest critic in his household, the only way is up for the actor, who was listed as one of the top 20 stars under the age of 20 by Indiewire.
