Jim has made critics and audience take note of his character Khalil, a terrifying mad terrorist on board the hijacked Pan Am Flight 73.
The actor revealed Khalil got to him as he found himself behaving like the character on the film's set.
"Khalil was short tempered and so I had begun behaving like him on sets. I used to sometimes yell at the assistant directors if my costume was not ready on time. I was saying things the way I usually don't but the way Khalil would've said it. The character was challenging, it got on my nerves," Jim said.

Jim is a theatre actor and director, who has shared the stage with actors like Kalki Koechlin and Ira Dubey. He has made his film debut with 'Neerja'.
The actor attended workshops and isolated himself to get into the skin of the character.
"I was in a bad mood because Khalil is always angry. So, while shooting the film, I went into an isolation, didn't interact with people, had no social life... But once I was done with the character, I could wash Khalil off my face”, Jim added.
Directed by Ram Madhvani, 'Neerja' stars Sonam in the titular role of flight attendant Neerja Bhanot.
