Published on May 3, 2023 4:00 pm IST

Macho Star Gopichand and Sriwass have teamed up for the third time for Rama Banam, which is set to hit cinemas this Friday. On this occasion, we met with veteran actor Jagapathi Babu, who played a prominent role in the movie, for a brief interview. Here is the transcript.

What made you accept Rama Banam?

If we look at the movies being made nowadays, they are mostly related to horror, thriller, and action genres. It’s been a long time since a family drama film was released in Tollywood. Gopichand, Sriwass, and I worked together on Lakshyam, and Rama Banam is also about brothers and their relationship. So, I immediately agreed to act in this movie after the narration. Rama Banam definitely gives the feeling of watching a good movie.


Tell us about your character in Rama Banam ?

I have done more than 70 supporting roles, but only 7 or 8 among them are remarkable. My character in Rama Banam is very important, and it is a positive role. Thanks to Gopichand for the belief that both our characters are crucial for Rama Banam. You can witness it in the climax of the film. I feel that the current generation needs these kinds of sentimental stories.


What was it like working with Khusbhu?

We have been friends since childhood, but we have never acted together in any film. For the first time, we shared screen space in this movie and she is a comfortable artist. I hope to work with her again.


Tell us about director Sriwass ?

He came up with a wonderful story, and he filmed it impressively. He is a great director and works hard until he gets what he wants. As Lakshyam was successful, he again wanted to tell a story about brothers and their emotions positively.


Few words about the producers ?

People Media Factory producers are the most comfortable producers. This is one of the best production houses I have worked with in recent times. They know what a film needs and they know what to arrange for it. My next film is also their production.


What are your future projects?

My next film with People Media Factory will be released soon, and I am also doing different roles in various biggies. I am glad that I am also getting good offers from Bollywood. I would like to play a Godfather-like role and also want to essay a role that outshines my role in Gayam.
