Kannada star Kiccha Sudeep is all set to make his debut in Hollywood and the work is in progress. A couple of months ago, Australian director Eddie Arya was in India to finalise the project with Sudeep and a photoshoot was also conducted during this visit. With all the formalities done, the team is ready to go on the floors with the shooting in February 2018. This movie is set in New York and is part of the science fiction genre.
In the meantime, Sudeep is busy with a number of assignments including Kannada movie The Villain, in which he is sharing the screen space with Shiva Rajkumar for the first time. Directed by Prem, the film also stars Amy Jackson, Mithun Chakraborty, Srikanth and Sruthi Hariharan in pivotal roles.
Arjun Janya is composing music for this flick with Girish R Gowda wielding the camera. Produced by CR Manohar, the film is due for release on February 14 next year.
Apart from the Hollywood movie Risen and Kannada flick The Villain, Sudeep also has Ambi Ning Vayassaytho directed by Gurudatha Ganiga, which he is producing under his home banner and playing a cameo role, and Phailwan in various stages of production. He has also bagged a pivotal role in the multilingual magnum opus, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, in which he will be sharing the screen space with Chiranjeevi, Vijay Sethupathi, Amitabh Bachchan and Nayanthara.
Sudeep is not only busy with his film assignments but is also hosting the Bigg Boss Kannada show season 5 for the fifth consecutive time. Meanwhile, the star has been approached by Bollywood director Rohit Shetty to play an important role in a film based on Mahabharata. Sudeep is yet to give his nod as he wants to wrap it all up before signing new films.
An actor par excellence with several awards to his credit, Sudeep has acted in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Hindi movies so far and expectations are high for his first ever Hollywood flick Risen in which he will be seen playing an army officer.
