Jagapati Babu has been having a great run of late in South cinema with back to back hits in the form of Rangasthalam, Goodachari, Aravindha Sametha and the recent Tamil blockbuster Viswasam. We had reported earlier about how he hadn’t been able to score a hit in Tamil despite having worked with really big stars like Rajinikanth, Vijay and Vikram. That void has been filled now, with Viswasam going on to become a huge blockbuster. Jagapati made his mark in the film as a success-obsessed father who pushes his young daughter too far in his pursuit of the top spot.
In Viswasam’s pre-release interviews, Jagapati had expressed his anxiety at not having a hit yet in Tamil cinema; he must be feeling relieved and ecstatic now with this gargantuan victory. With the Telugu and Kannada dubbed versions of the film releasing soon, Jagapati is expected to pull in his share of the audience due to his popularity in AP, Telangana and Karnataka.
Jagapati celebrates his 57th birthday today, the 12th of February. To make the day special for him and his fans, the makers of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy have released his first look poster from the film. He looks majestic and powerful, portraying Veera Reddy. We wish this handsome veteran actor a very happy birthday.
Meanwhile, the release date of Sye Raa hasn’t been officially locked yet, much to the chagrin of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s fans.
