He is a versatile actor who has made telugu audience laugh for the last 35 years and has been one of the finest comic actors Indian cinema has seen in its life time . We are talking about the Hasya Kireeti – Rajendra Prasad . His second innings as a senior artist playing character roles have not been that successful so far with more flops than hits . Be it with the directors who are so much focusing on hero centric scenes and not focusing on other characterisations or Rajendra Prasad himself not focusing on redefining himself with changing audience trend , there has no success for him barring Julai where is his work is part of commercial success .
However , 2014 seems to bring Rajendra Prasad back into top league with back-to-back big releases . He is playing an important role in ” Ori Devuda ” [ the working title of Venkatesh- Pawan Kalyan’s combo movie which is a remake of Bollywood hit – Oh My God !! ] . He is playing the character of Swamiji portrayed brilliantly by Midhun Chakravarthy in the orignial.
He also bagged a key role in the Mahesh Babu – Seenu Vytla combi’s next Aagadu which has an element of fun and sentiment attached to the role. With Sreenu Vytla who has become a master of generating comedy scenes these days , this role could be a very important for Rajendra Prasad as well to get back into top league .
