Actor Jagapathi Babu Has High Hopes Pinned on ‘Bairavaa’
Despite his popularity in the Telugu industry, actor Jagapathi Babu says he’s yet to make a mark in Tamil, and he’s hopeful that the recently released Vijay-starrer Bairavaa will give him the much-needed break and cement his position.
In the film, he played a butcher-turned-educationalist, impressing audiences and critics alike with his performance.
Talking to Deccan Chronicle, he said, “I hope Bairavaa brings me much-needed fame in Tamil. In Telugu, I’m kind of settled as I have been getting great offers. I am still waiting to make it big in Kollywood though.”
He added that he thoroughly enjoyed working with Jagapathi Babu.
“I loved working with Vijay. He is usually quiet on the sets when the camera is switched off, but as soon as he goes on-screen, we can see a different Vijay. He is like dynamite,” he said.
Even though he’s been acting for over three decades, Jagapathi believes he’s at a career high now.
“I’ve done several films as a hero, but I feel I am getting maximum attention now. Being a character artist is fun as you don’t have to take too much responsibility on your shoulders. In fact, I am enjoying my work these days,” he added.
