After Prakash Raj another South actor invades Bollywood as villain

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.”

Shah Rukh Khan to appear in Vishal Bharadwaj’s art house movie?

Shah Rukh Khan’s DILWALE has finally managed to collect a timid Rs 150 crore ! Timid because as compared to his other counterparts viz Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, DILWALE has been a sure let down both in terms of finance at the box office and the content. 

Both Aamir Khan’s PK (Rs 735 crore) and Salman Khan’s BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN ( Rs 626 crore) are thus way head of SRK’s DILWALE both commercially and content wise. 

Thus it seems with the amount of brickbats that Shah Rukh Khan has received from both critics and his fans for DILWALE, SRK has decided to finally to deviate from the commercial masala stuff and focus on content oriented serious cinema. Hence he has joined hands with brilliant art-house filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj, who has to his credits brilliant crafty films like MAQBOOL, OMKARA, HAIDER etc.

Vishal Bharadwaj in a recent press meet revealed about the secret pact between him and Shah Rukh Khan. He said, “Shah Rukh Khan is a dynamic actor and every thinking director aspires to work with the fantastic actor. I too have a script in mind which is exclusively written keeping SRK in mind.”

“Interestingly I have narrated the script to SRK and he has expressed his interest to work with me. But the problem is that SRK is so busy that it is hard time chasing him,” laments Bharadwaj.

However Bharadwaj insists that the film is very much on cards as each time when the duo has met SRK has given positive vibes for the film. 

“I am confident the movie will be made but when, it’s difficult to predict. Nevertheless, I keep my figures crossed and hope soon after I complete my film RANGOON, I hope to start with the Shah Rukh Khan film,” he concludes.
