New Delhi: Adding to the grandeur of Aayush Sharma’s upcoming film AS04, the cast of the film has been joined by veteran Telugu and Tamil actor Jagapathi Babu for a pivotal role. Aayush took to social media to make the announcement.
Aayush Sharma welcomed Jagapathi Babu saying, “I am an ardent follower of cinema across languages and have always admired Jagapathi Babu sir’s work. He is an incredible actor and enjoys a huge fan-following not just down South but nationwide as well. The moment that the script was ready, I was very certain I wanted to request Jagapathi sir to be a part of the film because we only could envision him playing this role. Can’t wait to unveil a totally new side of him in AS04. I am truly blessed to have gotten the opportunity to not only share screen space with him but also learn from him every time we are on sets together.”
Talking about his association with Aayush Sharma, Jagapathi Babu said, “AS04 is a very interesting film, despite being guided by an extremely exciting and refreshing approach, it is predominantly held by the fundamental traits of a typical Indian masala genre, making it a promising entertainer. I am immensely glad Aayush and the team of AS04 approached me, and I discovered the gem of a performer that Aayush is, the hardwork, dedication and knowledge that he brings to the table is truly remarkable and I am truly enjoying every moment of working with him.”
