Jagapathi Babu is the most sought after Character Artiste down South. He is currently doing films in all the four South Indian Languages. Performances in ‘Legend’, ‘Rangasthalam’ and ‘Aravinda Sametha’ will be remembered for a long time.
When quizzed what is the best compliment he received in his career, Jagapathi Babu revealed: ‘While playing my character in the Hindi remake of ‘Anthapuram’, Shahrukh Khan wasn’t able to deliver the required output during the death scene even after 15 retakes. That’s when he saidâ€¦I’m not able to do what that bastard did! I consider it as a best compliment’.
JB admits he drank Tequila to deliver the praise worthy performance in ‘Anthapuram’. He also shared his Father VB Rajendra Prasad who produced over 30 films used to send liquor bottle to him everyday before the shoot as shooting in the forest for ‘Adavilo Abhimanyudu’ is so difficult.
