The actor reacted to this form of suggestions for his character and mentioned, “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.”
Fans have also making theories after watching ‘Pathaan’ and demanding that there should be a prequel to his character. John says, “I’m astounded by the variety of messages I’m getting each day on my social media about how there ought to be a prequel to Jim. When folks virtually all the time root for the hero, and that hero is Shah Rukh Khan in Pathaan, it’s vastly gratifying that persons are rooting for the anti-hero too! I’m lucky that my work in Pathaan has spoken loudly and hopefully, I’ve managed to offer folks an anti-hero that they are going to all the time keep in mind. That was my intent after I heard Pathaan.”
His character Jim obtained a variety of love for the way suave he was. John says it could be nice if Aditya Chopra needs to deliver again his character. “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. As Luthra says in ‘Pathaan’, Jim and Kabir are best in the business so there could be lots more to explore if the film is made on Jim. But I don’t know what Aditya Chopra has on his mind” expressed the actor.
