Jagapathi Babu : A personification of versatilityMar 24, 2016 08:58 AM IST
Jaggu Bhai, as he is fondly called, Jagapathi Babu is going great guns in his career currently.The actor is now the most sought after character actor and villain in Telugu. There was a time when he used to be called as the next Sobhan Babu. Though he acted in intense roles in films like 'Gaayam', he mostly acted in family entertainers, where he would romance two or more heroines. He used to have a great lady fan following.
His career hit a rough patch a few years back and seemed like it hit a dead end. But he reinvented himself as an actor with 'Legend', which gave a new lease of life to his career. After that film, there is no looking back for Babu. His second innings has been fantastic and has shown the other side of him. His performances in films like 'Srimanthudu' and 'Nannaku Prematho' garnered huge appreciation
He has set an example to many senior actors, who have fallen off the radar these days, are planning to follow him by turning villains.
Recently, Jagapathi Babu expressed his desire to continue his father V.B.Rajendra Prasad's legacy as a producer. He is planning to encourage new and upcoming actors and directors by turning a producer. He is drafting a plan currently and his new production house is expected to take off soon.
Jagapathi Babu celebrates his 54th birthday today. We at Telugureporter.com wish this versatile actor a very happy birthday and hope he continues to mesmerise us for many more years.
