Of late, there has been a steady stream of Bollywood actors exploring acting opportunities in the Kannada film industry. Actors Mithun Chakraborty, Vivek Oberoi and Amy Jackson among others have worked in various upcoming Kannada films.
Pailwaan is a sports drama and Sudeep has been hitting the gym to look the part. According to reports, the actor also took a three-week crash course in boxing and wrestling in Thailand.
The excitement around the film is really high, as the actor-director duo delivered a blockbuster called Hebbuli last year.
Sudeep will next be seen in The Villian, which also has Shivrajkumar and Amy Jackson in the lead roles. Directed by Prem, the film is set to hit the screens in September. He is also simultaneously shooting for Kotigobba 3 and Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi’s upcoming period drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
