Jim Sarbh on why he doesn't want to play a villain anymore: Must say no else will remain a 'bad guy'
On Zoom's TV show Open House with Renil, the actor spoke about his journey from being a theatre actor to a super-villain in Bollywood with host Renil Abraham, said a statement.
"I am not going to play a villain for a while. It's not because I don't like that kind of acting or don't want to do it, but because I want to try other things now," Jim said.
"One must say no to some opportunities to open the possibilities of others. Else, I will only remain a bad guy," he added.
Before his Bollywood debut in 2016, Jim was very active in the theatre world. From playing a lover to adapt into the role of servant, Jim had played varied roles during his theatre days.
"I've been doing plays ever since school. There's never really been a stop to it. Except for one year, when I went off wandering around and stayed at an ashram for five months. Even there I was cast as Jesus in a play. There was no escaping, so I came back to acting," he added.
His performance as a drug peddler in the film Sanju has been appreciated a lot.
