Jagapathi Babu is to become Chiranjeevi. This is no morphing or any of the state-of-the-art techniques, but a role which he will be performing in an upcoming Telugu movie by name Maa Naanna Chiranjeevi by director P A Arun Prasad.
Maa Naanna Chiranjeevi narrates a story revolving around father-son relationship with Jagapathi Babu as the father to Atulit of Tulasi fame as his son. Neelima will play the lead heroine role in this movie. Chakri will tune the music for this movie. The film bearing the tag line 'Ante Pedda Hero" is expected to hit the screens by mid of July.
Arun Prasad who has earlier directed movies like Gowtham SSC and Prema Sandadi is currently working on two other movies as well, including Yagam with Navadeep as the hero and other with the Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy playing himself in the movie.
Jagapthi Babu is badly in need of success with a string of flops like Siddham and Bengaru Babu topping the list. However he hopes to revive his flagging career with the movies in his kitty.
