I nneed to write a JavaScript function that can call mt Controller's Action and use the result. We are using JSON, Ajax and jqGrid. But I need to override some default behavior with my own function.

Please explain how to do that.

Thanks!

Rather simple really.  All you need to do is use jQuery.Ajax.  I have provided an example below:
jQuery.ajax({
            type: "GET",
            dataType: "json",
            data: ({ id: myTestId }),
            url: "/controllers/action",
            cache: false,
            success: function (data) {

               if (data != null) {

 
                }
            },
            error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {
                alert("Status: " + xhr.statusText + " ; Thrown Error: " + thrownError);
            }
        });

Sorry here is the controller code:

       
 [Authorize]
        [HttpGet]
        public JsonResult FilterDetails(int? id)
        {
                      var item = from a in _areaRepository.Filters(Convert.ToInt32(id))
                       select new IndexViewModel
                       {
                           blablabla
                       };

                         return Json(item, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

         }
