With the success of South Indian villain Prakash Raj dominating Bollywood with hit films like SINGHAM and DABANGG 2 another South actor viz. Telugu star Sudheer Babu seems set to invade Bollywood with his villainy!
Tall, dark and handsome with a macho body Sudheer Babu will be seen playing the antagonist in the upcoming film BAAGHI opposite Bollywood new heartthrob Tiger Shroff.
Interestingly Sudheer Babu is a big name in Telugu cinema with hits films under his belt like SIVA MANASULO SRUTHI, PREMA KATHA CHITHRAM and AADU MAGAADRA BUJJI etc hence when asked why he opted for a villain’s part instead of a hero he says, “So what in the past there have been many actors who began as villains but soon graduated as hero. Remember early stars like Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha or South sensation Rajinikanth!”
“Besides though I am a hero down South but I must admit I have never been satisfied as an actor to experiment with challenging characters hence when Sajid Nadiadwala offered me the antagonist role I nodded as the role is challenging and gives me freedom to explore my hidden histrionics.”
On being quizzed about his experience working with Tiger Shroff, Sudheer Babu admitted that he had complex looking at the muscular body of Tiger.
He said, “When I first met Tiger I was bowled over by his brilliant physique. Hence it was really important that I matched Tiger on all parameters and it wasn’t easy. I had to train myself in various forms of martial arts, including Kalaripayattu, to stand up to his physical fitness.”
