Jisshu Sengupta is slowly but surely becoming a name to reckon with in Tollywood. Moreover, his impressive show in films, such as Aswathama and Bheeshma is now proving to be vital for his forthcoming films.
We hear that the Mardaani 2 star will play the main antagonist in Chiranjeevi’s forthcoming film, Acharya. Apparently, the film’s director Koratala Siva cast Jisshu for the part after watching his performance in Aswathama.
Director Koratala Siva, who believes that a tough baddie can only elevate a film’s narrative, generally has strong antagonists in his films. Getting a seasoned performer like Jisshu could only raise the intensity and the action sequences in the film.
According to a source, “When Jisshu started shooting, the director felt he stands vindicated for casting him in the role of a villain. Being a true performer, Jisshu excelled in his role, impressing even Chiranjeevi.” Meanwhile, Jisshu will be seen as Shoban Babu in the forthcoming Jayalalitha biopic, Thalaivi, starring Kangana Ranaut.
