Chennai: Jagapathi Babu considers himself lucky for landing an opportunity to share screen space with superstar Rajnikanth in his next Tamil film 'Lingaa', which was officially launched Friday.

"Who would not feel lucky to act with the Thalaiva? I'm lucky and extremely happy that I will be working with him (Rajnikanth) for the second time. When most actors are waiting for a single opportunity to work with him, I've got my second chance," Jagapathi told us.

Jagapathi and Rajnikanth previously worked in Telugu drama 'Katha Nayakudu'.

A romantic hero for nearly two decades, Jagapathi was recently seen as an antagonist in Telugu actioner 'Legend'.

Asked if he would also be essaying a negative role in 'Lingaa', he said: "I can't divulge details about my role. I've been told that Rajni sir really liked my performance in 'Legend'. I'm just looking forward to work with him."

'Lingaa', which also features Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty, will be helmed by K. S. Ravikumar.

Meanwhile, Jagapathi will be seen in the role of Mahesh Babu's father in upcoming yet-untitled Telugu film to be directed by Koratala Siva.
