Amid the lockdown, Babu has been spending quality time with his family, going by the pictures and videos he shares on social media.

Fondly called the Prince of Tollywood, Babu will next be seen in ‘Major’. He will also be producing the film inspired by 26/11 martyr, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. The film stars Adivi Sesh in the title role.

‘Major’ is inspired by the life of Unnikrishnan, the NSG commando who lost his life in the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. The bilingual film is being shot in Telugu and Hindi. ‘Major’ is set to release later this year.
