Quite a while ago, the former Chief Minister of Karnataka, HD Kumaraswamy met actor Kiccha Sudeep raising speculations that the latter would take the political plunge. However, no such news came forth with reports that the star turned down the offer. And now we hear from sources that HD Deve Gowda, the former Prime Minister of India, has again extended an invitation to the star to join his Janata Dal Secular party. However, Sudeep seems to be non-committal about it.
While several of his contemporaries such as Upendra are floating their own political parties and joining other parties, there are huge expectations that Sudeep also may consider turning a politician. But he has not decided about it and his fans have to wait for an official confirmation regarding it. With Karnataka all set to go for the state legislative assembly polls this year, Sudeepâ€™s decision is being keenly watched. In fact, he has raised his voice on several social issues.
Meanwhile, Sudeep is busy with a number of acting assignments as well. The Kannada movies lined up for release this year include Ambi Ning Vayassaytho, Phailwan and The Villain. He is bankrolling Ambi Ning Vayassaytho, which is the Kannada remake of the Tamil hit movie Pa Paandi. In The Villain, he is sharing the screen space with Shiva Rajkumar and Phailwan and it is the first sports-based movie in his career.
Besides his Kannada movies, Sudeep is all set to make his debut in Hollywood with Risen in which he plays an army officer. He also has the magnum opus, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in which he shares the screen space with the Telugu mega star Chiranjeevi. With a slew of films in various languages, it remains to be seen if he would indeed take the political plunge.
