Veteran Telugu star Jagapathi Babu has joined the cast of Bollywood actor Aayush Sharma’s upcoming feature film.
In a statement, Aayush welcomes Jagapathi Babu: “I am an ardent follower of cinema across languages and have always admired Jagapathi Babu sir’s work. He is an incredible actor and has a huge fan following not only down south but across the country.
“The moment the script was ready, I was very certain that I wanted to request Jagapathi sir to be a part of the film as we could only imagine him playing the part. Can’t wait to unveil a brand new side of him in AS04. I am really lucky that I not only got the opportunity to share screen space with him but also get to learn from him whenever we are together on the sets.
Talking about his collaboration with Aayush Sharma for AS04, Jagapathi Babu said, “AS04 is a very interesting film, despite being directed by an extremely exciting and fresh approach, it is mainly based on a typical Indian masala. Held by the fundamentals of the genre, making it a promising entertainer. I am so glad that Aayush and the team at AS04 got in touch with me, and I get to know Aayush is a gem of an artist, the hard work, dedication and knowledge he brings to the table is truly remarkable and I really look forward to working with him. Enjoying every moment with him.”
Recently, Aayush Sharma on his birthday unveiled a glimpse of AS04, which is his fourth film in Bollywood.

Following the announcement, his co-actor was unveiled, with Aayush launching former Miss India United Continents 2015, debutante Ms. Mishra.

Currently being shot in Mumbai, AS04 will hit the screens next year.
