Final shares of Jr NTR’s early 2015 release have touched just 40 crores shared despite that fact that the film is touted as a blockbuster by critics. Senior hero Jagapathi Babu says that proper casting of stars would have raised the film’s collection graphs.
“Had I done Posani Krishnamurali’s role, the collections would have been different. If a former hero like Jagapathi Babu declines to salute a hero like NTR and then he salutes later, overall heroism would have got elevated. That would have raises collections by 7-8 crores”, says Jagapathi Babu. With no offence meant, he says Telugu industry is still not coming out of the mould to cast actors like him in proper roles. When he shared the same with Puri Jagan, who has earlier directed him Baachi, felt sad for missing that point out.
“I’m looking forward for kind of roles that are being done by Big B, Prakash Raj, late Srihari and Praan. If any director approaches with a different role, I’m ready to take it up as a challenge”, says Jagapathi, asking Telugu Industry folks to vouch for a change.
