Hindi cinema actor John Abraham has worked in many films and he is also known for his good personality and body. Known for playing strong patriot and villain roles in his past few films, his villain avatar in Pathaan gained much appreciation. John played the role of ‘Jim’ a patriot who turned into a ruthless killer. His negative character as Jim won the hearts of the people. Recently John expresses his hopes and wishes if his character Jim gets a backstory.
John while expressing his desires, said in a statement, “It is incredible the amount of love that I have been receiving for playing Jim in Pathaan. As an actor, I only work for the love of audiences and fans. Records and milestones are a huge bonus and I’m grateful that Pathaan is such a historic blockbuster. I didn’t expect that people would love my character so much that they want more of Jim to be given to them.”
He added, “I’m astounded by the number of messages I’m getting daily on my social media about how there should be a prequel to Jim. When people almost always root for the hero, and that hero is Shah Rukh Khan in Pathaan, it is hugely gratifying that people are rooting for the anti-hero too. I’m fortunate that my work in Pathaan has spoken loudly and hopefully, I have managed to give people an anti-hero that they will always remember. That was my intent when I heard Pathaan.”

Further speaking about the characterisation of Jim, what he loves about Jim, he said, “Imagine the pain he endured, imagine the hurt that broke him and turned him into the man he became. To me, Jim was a very powerful character and yes, it would be great if Aditya Chopra wants to bring him back and tell the world how good a super-spy he was and how he became a ruthless mercenary later.”
He adds, “As Luthra says in Pathaan, Jim and Kabir are the best in business. So, there could be lots to explore if a film is made on Jim. I don’t know what Aditya Chopra has in mind. As of now, I’m relishing the love that’s coming my way and I’m thankful that I have entertained people thoroughly.”
Talking about the success of Pathaan, it has crossed over Rs. 400 crores nett in India. Pathan starring Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles and directed by Siddharth Anand is performing very well at box-office and is receiving global appreciation.
