Jagapati Babu, once a popular hero, started his second innings by playing negative roles. He played opposite Balakrishna, NTR, and Maheshbabu in their films so far. He maintains perfect timing and his villainy appeared novel for the present generation audiences. The latest information about him is that Jagapati Babu is accepting such negative roles not only in Telugu but also in Tamil. He is supposed to play villain in a Tamil film with Vijay as the hero. That film, which is supposed to be the prestigious 60th film of Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Jagapati Babu’s characterisation would be ‘ruthless and menacing’. The film is yet to be titled and would be directed by popular Tamil director Bharatan. If everything done as per schedule the movie would hit the floors in June.
