Of his film Jai Lava Kusa, which has crossed over 90 crore worldwide in four days, Jr NTR said, "More than getting excited about playing three characters, it's the emotional angle of the script which got me hooked. This film could be made without the triplets because it's got such potential," reports IANS.

Jr NTR has also featured in films like Naanaku Prematho and Janatha Garage, which received a great response from the audience.

He will soon team up with filmmaker Trivikram for a yet-untitled Telugu project.
