Popular actor Jagapathi Babu, known for doing big ticket south Indian films, will be seen in a small budget Telugu horror comedy. Directed by debutant Sudhakar, the film also stars Chaitanya Krishna.
“It was the script that impressed him to come on board. Jagapathi Babu plays heroine Eesha’s father in the film. It’s a role that comes with a surprise element and the makers are secretly guarding it,” said a source from the film’s unit.
“Nearly 50 percent of the film has already been shot. The makers have been flexible with the shoot, given Jagapathi’s very busy schedule,” he said.
Jagapathi Babu is busy with his Tamil film, tentatively titled Vijay 60, where he will be seen playing a baddie.
