He may not be the lead character in many of the films he done, but there is no doubt that Jim Sarbh definitely makes his presence known every time he’s on screen. And with a whole host of different roles under his belt, Sarbh recently talked about some of these characters.
Having played the obnoxious businessman Adil in the Amazon Prime series ‘Made in Heaven’ (2019), New Indian Express reports Sarbh saying, “People couldn’t quite write off Adil’s character, despite the fact that he can be quite obnoxious, and I appreciated that.”
Where audiences loved to hate Adil, there has been much anticipation for a second season for the show. When asked, Sarbh confirmed, it is on its way, though he is unsure about the fate of his character. “They’re writing! I hope I’m in it,” he expressed.
On the other hand, Sarbh was recently seen in another web series, playing a very different role, in Bejoy Nambiar’s ‘Flip’ (2019) showing on Eros Now, where he plays a wheelchair-bound man who is paralysed from the neck down. “The limitation meant that I essentially had my voice and eyes to express, and those are enough. I didn’t prepare much apart from watching the documentary’ The Real Sleeping Beauty’ (2007), in which Sarah Scantlin comes out of a 20-year coma,” the actor expressed.
Sarbh has constantly taken on roles that seem to be polar opposites. This was seen again when he played the ruthless terrorist Khalil in ‘Neerja’ (2016), and the very humble Natraj in Zoya Hussain’s ‘Teen Aur Aadha’ (2017). Talking about how he prepared for such a transition, Sarbh went on to explain, “Easy. I acted like one part of me in one, and like another part of me in the other. Each had extensive rehearsal processes – Neerja required major dialect coaching, and I thoroughly enjoyed building the character of Khalil. For Teen Aur Aadha, Zoya and I also rehearsed a lot. Since it was a one-take film, we needed the timing and the execution to be spot on.”
If his career graph anything to go by, Sarbh is prepared to give his audiences all the surprises he can. Already having proved himself as a chameleon somewhat, it seems there will be much more of him to come.
