Jagapathi Babu was once known for his romantic and family movies. He used to command huge following in ladies and women. Slowly, women slowed down coming to film theaters and got glued to serials on Television. Slowly the trend of family films subdued so is the demand for Jagapathi Babu. At one stage it was told that the actor is on the verge of going bankrupt due to career slow down and losing money in gambling.
But his recent role in Legend breathed life in to his career. Jagapathi Babu made a comeback with a bang with excellent performance in the movie. His second innings is flourishing with offers now. He received 50 Lakhs for Legend and is now demanding 1 Crore for each movie. But the film makers are still keen to bag him in their movies. He is planning to do at least a dozen movies this year.
