Jagapathi Babu to star in Ayush Sharma's next
Tentatively titled AS04, the film is directed by Katyayan Shivpuri
Veteran Telugu actor Jagapathi Babu has joined the cast of Bollywood actor Aayush Sharma's upcoming feature film, tentatively titled AS04.
Directed by debutant Katyayan Shivpuri, the film will hit screens in 2023. Announcing that Jagapathi Babu has joined the team of AS04, Ayush shared a photo of him with the former on Instagram. He wrote, "From being a fanboy to finally sharing the screen with you. My Privilege to welcome you on board AS04 Jagapathi Babu, sir."
Noting that only Jagapathi Babu could envision this role, Ayush, in a statement, said, "Can't wait to unveil a totally new side of him in AS04. I am truly blessed to have gotten the opportunity to not only share screen space with him but also learn from him every time we are on the sets together."
Talking about his association with Aayush Sharma for AS04, Jagapathi Babu said, "AS04 is a very interesting film, despite being guided by an extremely exciting and refreshing approach, it is predominantly held by the fundamental traits of a typical Indian masala genre, making it a promising entertainer. I am immensely glad Aayush and the team of AS04 approached me, and I discovered the gem of a performer that Aayush is, the hard work, dedication and knowledge that he brings to the table is truly remarkable and I am truly enjoying every moment of working with him."
The film is currently under production in Mumbai and it also stars Sushrii Mishraa.
