One hit and your fortunes get changed, this seems to be perfectly right in case of family hero Jagapathi Babu. He was the automatic choice for family entertainers and has delivered many super hits like Mavichiguru and Shubalagnam.
However, with the changing times, his career has taken backseat and was struggling for a hit at one point of his career. Sooner than later, he realized that he was past his prime as a hero and took a wise decision to do negative roles provided the role impresses him.
He was roped in as main Villain in Balakrishna’s Legend which turned out to be super duper hit and made him the most demanding actor. The success of Legend brought him another offer in the form of Govindudu Andarivadele, but the actor was hesitant to do the role and softly rejected it.
As per reliable sources, he was offered the role of Charan’s father in the movie but somehow Jaggu Bhai felt that role had limited scope for him. That is the reason he chose not to be a part of the film.
Justifying the news, it’s evident that only Ram Charan, Prakash Raj and Srikanth have been highlighted in the movie teasers. It’s also said that the whole movie revolves around these 3 characters. Malayalam actor Rahman has been roped as Ram Charan’s father.
Well, that’s a good move by Jagapathi Babu. Let’s hope he gets some meaty roles in the future and entertain us in varied roles.
