Masters of the craft like Puri Jagan, Rajamouli, Sreenu Vytla, Sukumar and others have always roped in these non-Telugu speaking actors for villain roles. Guys like Sonu Sood, Pradeep Raut, Rahul Dev, Kelly Dorjee etc are becoming a routine here. What is more unbearable is Saikumar’s brother Ravi Shankar’s bass voice for all these different faces. And today, Telugu industry is proud to say that they have got their own muscled, self-dubbing, and stylish villain. He is none other than Jagapathi Babu who impressed one and all with his histrionics as the antagonist in Balakrishna’s latest release ‘Legend’.
Jagapathi has won laurels for his role at par with the two different getups donned by Balayya. His dialogue delivery style, voice modulation, dressing and carrying the grudge with an ego all these villains have, is exceptional. Yes, Tollywood got their new, own man. Let us see how Jagapathi takes over the reins of villainy in coming days.
