You probably know him from Dabangg 3 as Chulbul Pandey’s enemy. Or the evil man from Puli. You may remember as the guy who played a cameo in director SS Rajampouli’s global hit Baahubali: The Beginning. But, there is more to Sudeep than a few negative roles and cameo he has done in non-Kannada films. He commands a huge fan following that makes him a formidable force at the box office in Karnataka.
Sudeep has been the captain of Karnataka Bulldozers, a team in the celebrity cricket league. He has been the face of Bigg Boss Kannada since its inception eight years ago. He has a slew of box office hits to his name in multiple languages, a feat that gives him a distinctive edge among his peers in Kannada cinema.
