After spreading laughter for seven years in ‘Jabardast’ Nagababu fired at Mallemala and left ‘Jabaradast’ to join ‘Adirindi’ rogramme on Zee channel. In ‘Adirindi’ Nagababu is the judge and he laughing over the skits of Chandra, RP, Venu and Shanraj. However, at every step Mallemala created hurdles for the show which began with huge expectations. By telecasting hit skits of ‘Jabardast’ at the time of ‘Adirindi’ show, it is giving sleepless nights to Nagababu. ‘Adirindi’ show is pale compared to old skits of ‘Jabardast’ and hence it is lagging behind in TRP rating. Nagababu is unable to fulfill his wish of taking revenge on ‘Jabardast’. However, with ‘Adirindi’ getting low TRP rating and looking smaller compared to ‘Jabardast’, Nagababu is feeling insulted.
Though so far four episodes of ‘Adirindi’ programme were aired, the TRP rating has not increased, causing concern to Nagababu. He was getting Rs10 lakh as the remuneration for each episode of ‘Jabardast’ but for ‘Adirindi’ Zee channel is paying Rs.25 lakh per episode. While remuneration is not a problem for Nagababu, the lack of popularity for the show has disappointed him and he is said to be thinking of leaving the show. In an attempt to lift ‘Adirindi’ programme in front of ‘Jabardast’ Nagababu delivered several punches to ‘Jabardast’ but now ‘Adirindi’ show appears to have delivered him big punch. There is a talk that Nagababu has decided to distance himself from TV shows for some time. Meanwhile, as Pawan Kalyan is leaving Jana Sena to make a re-entry into films, Nagababu is said to be planning to take active part in the party activities.
