He be­came a house­hold name with his Bol­ly­wood de­but Neerja in 2016 and since then ac­tor Jim Sarbh has done four films. A Death in the Gunj and Raabta both re­leased in 2017 while Pad­maa­vat and Sanju re­leased this year. Jim is also ex­per­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent medi­ums — be it short films or web se­ries.

“I just like to act,” says Jim when asked if success in Bol­ly­wood is im­por­tant to him. “If I get success it is great. Who doesn’t like success,” he adds.

This year has been par­tic­u­larly good for the ac­tor as both his films were hits. More­over, he has starred in two in­ter­na­tional films, which are cur­rently tour­ing the fes­ti­val cir­cuits.

Th­ese in­clude the Michael Win­ter bot­tom di­rected The Wed­ding Guest which also stars Dev Pa­tel, and Be­neath a Sea of Lights, di­rected by Neel Ku­mar, which also stars the Os­carnom­i­nated ac­tor Barkhad Abdi. “It has been an in­ter­est­ing year for me, and a very en­joy­able one on the work front. Be­sides my work projects, I also got to en­joy life. Go­ing into the next year, I am await­ing the re­leases of my two in­ter­na­tional films,” says Jim.

The ac­tor also has a cameo in Ritesh Ba­tra’s up­com­ing film, Pho­to­graph, star­ring Nawazud­din Sid­diqui and Sanya Mal­ho­tra. “An­other web se­ries will most prob­a­bly be out in March, so I am look­ing for­ward to that. I am also do­ing a short film by Be­joy Nam­biar. There are talks for other projects as well,” con­cludes Jim.

It has been an in­ter­est­ing year for me... Go­ing into next year, I am await­ing re­leases of my two in­ter­na­tional films. JIM SARBH AC­TOR
