Nagababu, 58, is the younger brother of Chiranjeevi, and older to Janasena founder Pawan Kalyan.
He unsuccessfully contested the 2019 parliamentary elections from Narasapuram constituency in West Godavari District on his younger brother's Janasena party ticket.
Nagababu features in movies now and then, and is majorly spotted on television as a judge in comedy shows and others.
He hails from Mogalturu village near Narasapuram town in West Godavari district, though he lives in Hyderabad.
