He was the chief baddie in last year’s superhit Neerja where heplayed a terrorist. Now in upcoming Raabta, he has turned out to be a third angle of the love triangle featuring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon. We are talking about theater actor Jim Sarbh who is going through a complete role transition as he moves on from being an unkempt terrorist in the hostage drama featuring Sonam Kapoor to now turning out to be a suave businessman in Raabta.
Directed by Dinesh Vijan, the film features him in an altogether different light as this time around he is required to don a stylish persona. So while one seems him riding on choppers and wearing three piece suits, there is also a remarkable shift that would be evident when it comes to his body language and overall mannerisms.
Says a source attached to the film, “Jim may just be kick-starting his film career but in theater he has been a major force already. He has performed variety of parts there and hence comes with the capability to transform himself like a chameleon. You saw one aspect of him in Neerja, now get ready to watch an altogether different him in Raabta.”
Now is that going to be as an antagonist in the musical? Or is there a different kind of mystery element to this reincarnation saga? Well, one would know once the film, which is helmed by T-Series and Dinesh Vijan, releases all over on 9th June.
