Jim Sarbh’s portrayal of Malik Kafur who was a slave-general in Allaudin Khilji’s army has been appreciated to the zenith and has stand out amongst the enormity of great star performances like Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. Jim played a homosexual who was rather envious of Padmavati because of Khilji would not love anybody more than her and Kafur could not resist Khilji for one second. The lines of this character being offensive to a particular community was quite blurred but Jim played it with immense brilliance.
Jim will be playing an important character bin Sanjay Dutt biopic which is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and stars Ranbir Kapoor as Dutt. The details of his character is kept under the wraps by the makers but it is certainly a vital role. Jim started his career being an antagonist in Sonam Kapoor starrer Neerja, where he played a terrorist who has hijacked a plane. Jim got a filmfare award for his portrayal and has not stopped since than. Jim also played the role of the main villain in Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Raabta though the film was dead on arrival.
He played a mesmerizing character in Konkona Sen Sharma’s directorial debut A Death in the Gunj, in which he was massively appreciated. Jim has been a theater actor and director for plays such as A Death of a Salesman and Merchant of Venice. He is clearly having a party in Hindi films getting all the interesting supporting characters though he is yet to play a lead in the film which can be marketed entirely on his name and talent. Release date of Dutt Biopic is June 29 after being pushed from March 29 and some of the other important characters include Dia Mirza who will play the current wife Maanyata Dutt while Paresh Rawal will play Sunil Dutt.
