He is the latest bad cop, the lead villain of ‘Thaandavam’. While most of the films have been importing villains from Bollywood, UTV’s Thaandavam which is set to release on Sep 29 has bought the hottest actor of Tollywood – Jagabathi Babu on board. The actor in a recent interview has said that it was Dir. Vijay who changed the look in me and rechristen the role. And he also said that he will continue using the new name for Tamil Innings, but will always stick to original one in Telugu and Kannada films.
About his experience, he said that while shooting, he always kept in mind that he has been working with big name. But later when wrapping up the shoot he realized he has been working with good people. Plus this film will be close to his heart, more than the relationships. The film itself was a bonus. He also added that he never listened to the story before signing up the movie. He immediately said ‘yes’ to the script and will hear the story later. Later after hearing he felt so much confident on the subject. After all it has big names like Actor Vikram, Dir Vijay and the composer G V Prakash. Whereas the women on board were – Anushka Shetty , Amy Jackson and Lakshmi Rai.
When quizzed about Vikram, JB said that Vikram actually envies JB’s role in the movie. It was nice of Vikram to say that and at the same time he is too big fan of Chiyaan and in no way be compared with him
