You should still be able to achieve that by defining column templates in the View, as you were doing in the sample code you have sent initially. There is detailed information for binding columns in the ASP.NET MVC grid documentation
If you have problems configuring those templates, you can send the view and the controller and we can try to limit the columns for you as an example.
I am looking forward to your feedback.
All the best,
