Sudden appearance of Jagapathi Babu as villain in untitled Balakrishna-Boyapati Srinu film could have sprung a surprise for audience. But, the wow factor is missed with Jagapathi Babu arranging a press meet much earlier before the completion of shooting schedules. For that matter, even Jagapathi Babu’s look in the movie as an antagonist is almost leaked. Elements like these should be taken proper care by producers keeping them hidden and confidential till the last hour. Unfortunately, producers Anil Sunkara and Sai Korrapati revealed the news to media.
This is a wrong strategy because Jagapathi Babu lost his market value and his characterization as villain or hero may not enhance the business value of this film. Alone the combo of Balayya-Boayapti is enough to keep standards high. So, analysts say that neither Balakrishna nor director Boayapati may be pleased with this effort of producers in revealing Babu as villain for Balayya.
