I could only think of Jim Sarbh to play the character in Massage: Bejoy Nambiar
Director Bejoy Nambiar has carved a niche for himself in the film industry by delivering hits like Shaitaan (2011), David (2013) and Wazir (2016), to name a few. The talented filmmaker continues to enthrall the audience with clutter-breaking narratives and, as it seems, he is extremely particular about the actors he ropes in for all his stories. Interestingly, Bejoy wanted Jim Sarbh to play the lead role in his upcoming short story titled, Massage which is a part of Eros Now’s upcoming series, Flip.
Jim will be seen essaying the role of a Parsi person in the drama-thriller Massage who happens to get engaged to his childhood friend. However, an incident completely changes his life. Source informs that Bejoy believed only Jim could play the role and would not have directed the story without him.
When contacted, Bijoy Nambiar confirms the story and says, “I could only think of Jim playing the character. I would not have gone ahead with the story without Jim but I am glad he liked the concept and instantly agreed to be on board for Massage. I am sure people will appreciate his performance and enjoy watching the short story Massage as part of Eros Now series, Flip.”
Flip releases on 23rd March, 2019, exclusively on Eros Now
