Jagapathi Babu’s Second Innings with Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati Srinu’s Legend is going great guns after he started doing character and villain roles. There was no looking back to the Senior actor and the actor emerged as a hot property not only in Tollywood but also in the neighboring cine industry. At this time, the actor did attempt Patel S.I.R in which he is seen as a Lead actor. But then, the movie has ended up as a big disaster at the box office.
There are rumors that he also invested in the movie production along with Sai Korrapati and lost big money on the project. The actor has become a quick learner and has decided to do films with no hero roles going further. “I shouldn’t have attempted to do lead role again as my career is going great guns as character artist and villain,” the actor admitted. Jagapathi Babu is one of the highest paid character actors and villains in the Tollywood right now. The actor is currently busy doing multiple projects simultaneously. At one stage before Legend, the actor was completely bankrupt and was going through a very lean patch. And so he learned his lesson the hard way.
