Jagapathi Babu, having faced a decline in leading roles, transitioned to negative and character roles, ultimately finding immense success and financial gain in this new avatar. Another prominent actor following a similar trajectory is Rajasekhar, whose recent films have struggled at the box office.
Despite Rajasekhar’s expressed desire to play the antagonist opposite Megastar Chiranjeevi, he never received that opportunity. He also declined other roles from various directors. However, a significant change occurred as he recently joined the sets of Nithin’s upcoming film “Extra” directed by Vakkantam Vamsi, where he takes on the role of the main antagonist.
This film has been in production for an extended period and aims for a December release. With Rajasekhar now on board, the team is working tirelessly to meet their deadline. The future holds uncertainty for Rajasekhar.
It remains to be seen whether he will establish himself as a notable antagonist in the industry or potentially emulate Jagapathi Babu’s journey of earning substantial remuneration through such character roles, as opposed to leading roles that incurred losses. Many are hopeful that he will continue in this vein and achieve success akin to Jagapathi Babu.
