According to a source, Jagapathi has been roped in to play a powerful antagonist in the Dictator actor's upcoming actioner to be helmed by KS Ravi Kumar. "Jagapathi Babu's performance is one of the high points of Legend and to recreate the same impact, we have decided to cast him again in yet another powerful role in Balakrishna's next film. Set in Rayalaseema backdrop, the movie loaded with high-octane action and emotions will enthrall the movie buffs," informs a source.
