Kichcha Sudeep in the cinema crossing the language barrier: it is the beginning of a beautiful era
Kannada star Kichcha Sudeep, who is preparing for the launch of 'Pehlwaan' , believes that the public is now willing to see excellent content from around the world. Lately, many Bollywood and southern movie stars are working in Hindi or southern language movies. Akshay Kumar was seen as a villain in Rajnikanth's '2.0', while 'Baahubalu' Prabhas star recently appeared in a multilingual film like 'Saaho'.
And Sudeep said that this cultural exchange is good for the cinema. People here think that South is so good (in making movies) and we think what excellent movies Bollywood is doing. It is a beautiful phase where there is an exchange of ideas, thoughts. It's the beginning of a beautiful era, said Sudeep, who turned 46 on Tuesday, told a news agency.
Viewers across the country and the world receive content from different languages. Previously there used to be a problem of skin and accent, but today it does not exist. The people have grown. There is a difference in your mentality. Now there is no border division, he added. In the Kannada film industry, Sudeep is one of the most important stars, but the actor said he never lets fame go to his head and treats her as a motivation to work harder.
I know that my movies brought me here, so I concentrate on making great movies and getting excellent scripts. I have no inhibitions. My fans are there for my work, for the movies I made. They are my assets. The fans are there, but they should not become my arrogance. My fans guarantee me a good opening the day my movie premieres. So the responsibility lies with me in doing quality work, he said.
In 'Pehlwaan', Sudeep will be seen playing the role of a boxer and Suneil Shetty features as his mentor. To get the toned body and fierce look, the actor underwent a physical transformation. Citing an example of Bollywood action stars like Tiger Shroff, Hrithik Roshan, Sudeep said, Here you have very strong heroes. We are hardly ten percent of what they are. This film is a big opportunity as an actor. It was a big challenge for me. I had to eat diet food, everything was calculated and measured. I had three looks in the film, bulk, lean and the transformation, I was 84-85 kg, I had to come down to 73-74 kg. The actor said initially he was scared about how the audiences will react to his look as a boxer.
Although people are watching or talking about my appearance in the movie in a good way, but at first, I felt a little embarrassed. This is worse than being dressed, you must be perfect. The shame was scary. Salman Khan has been into fitness for a long time and if he can feel like that in 'Sultan' then what I am? I did have my fears. I was scared initially, Sudeep said. 'Pehlwaan', directed by S Krishna, is slated to release in Kannada, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Tamil on September 12.
Sudeep will also be seen playing the antagonist in Salman Khan's upcoming film 'Dabangg 3' .
