Sudeep had a successful yet tiring year in 2008 and is reportedly taking a break after falling sick during the shooting of Veera Madakari. This talented actor-director has even ventured into Hindi this year with Ram Gopal Varma's Phoonk which was a huge hit, making Sudeep a household name all over India. His latest release, the comedy Mast Maja Maadi, is running successfully.
Apparently, the actor has been working hard for the whole of 2008 without proper rest. The shooting of Veera Madakari has been going on for six months now and Sudeep, apart from acting in the main role, is also directing it. The mental and physical hard work that the actor had to render for the film resulted in his falling sick; the doctors have advised him proper rest before resuming work. So Sudeep is recuperating in Hyderabad and will return to Bangalore shortly. Most of the production work of his ambitious project Veera Madakari is over and the film is expected to release sometime early next year.
Raagini is the heroine and producer Dinesh Gandhi plays a special role in the film.
