Jagapati Babu, who started his second innings with a negative role in Legend, has been busy, ever since the film released. He has been getting quite a few offers from Tamil filmmakers for playing negative characters. Now, we hear that the actor has signed two films in K’town — one film is opposite Vijay, and the other one with Vishal.
He was last seen in the Rajinikanth-starrer Tamil film Lingaa. Jagapati Babu also played the villain in Vikram’s Thandavam. Sources say that after seeing his performance in Nannaku Prematho, the makers of Vijay 60 had approached the latter for Vijay’s film, which is directed by Bharathan of Azhagiya Tamizh Magan fame. “This is a big project for Jagapati Babu in Tamil. In Tollywood too, the actor is busy with multiple projects. But, undoubtedly, this is the best phase in Jagapati Babu’s career,” the source added. Vijay 60, which stars Keerthi Suresh opposite Vijay, is produced by Vijaya Productions, and Santhosh Narayanan will score the music.
