Jim also showed his excitement on social media for his nomination in the Best Performance By An Actor category for Rocket Boys 2. He said, “I was having quite a weird few days, and then all the pieces wrapped up neatly and I heaved a huge sigh of relief, played a game of sweaty basketball, cycled home in the cold sweet rain, went in for a shower, and came out to all these messages and calls. I was an hour late to watch Dirty Harry with a neighbour, so I ran up, told him about the nom, and then we proceeded to watch the movie. ‘Do you feel lucky, punk?’ Yes. Honoured to be nominated for the International @iemmys amongst such talented artists. I loved playing Dr. Bhabha. Rocket Boys is deeply etched in my mind and heart.”
He even congratulated his fellow Indian nominees and manifested a hattrick win for the nation. Jim added, “And @virdas and @shefalishahofficial: COME ON!!!” Here’s manifesting a 3-way win for India at the International Emmys.
