Kannada actor-turned-director Sudeep, who entered B-town with the Ram Gopal Verma's movie Phoonk, has denied the claims of shifting his base to Mumbai. It was reported earlier that the director was quitting the Sandalwood in order to pursue his Bollywood projects like Phoonk 2, Rakta Charitrain and remake of Just Maat Maathalli.
Speaking to the Bangalore Times about the reports of his shifting to Mumbai, the Veera Madakari actor says, “In that case, I"d have packed my bags and bid goodbye to Bangalore. As of now, I only ask for an air ticket. Whenever the director has called me, I"ve gone, delivered and come back," the Bangalore Times quotes him as saying.
Presently, Sudeep is busy filming with Vivek Oberoi for the movie Rakta Charitra. Soon he will head to Mumbai to resume the shooting for Phoonk 2. He has also completed another RGV's movie Rann, which is slated for a January 2010 release. He has also planned to debut in B-Town as a director with a remake of JMM.
However, Sudeep currently has two Kannada projects like Mr. Theertha and Just Maat Maathalli, for which he has already comoleted the shooting. Both are long awaited movies and now they are getting ready to release. “I"ll focus on the release of JMM, after which I"ll work on an S Narayan project, a first for me," he says to BT.
