Sudeep, who is the newborn superstar of South India, is on cloud nine after his performance in Telugu movie Eega being acknowledged by all the major film industries of India. The actor, who is on a promotional spree, has thanked the media and fans for giving an overwhelming response and said that matinee idol of Sandalwood Dr Rajkumar too did negative roles.
Sudeep was repeatedly asked about his decision on doing a negative role by his fans for which the actor replied that the iconic star Rajkumar was also seen in the role of baddie. "In Bhakta Prahalada, Rajkumar enacted the character of Hiranyakashipu. When the superstar of his calibre had done such roles, then why do I have issues to do negative characters. After all, we are actors and have to do variety of roles."
"When SS Rajamouli sir narrated the one-line story of Eega, I gave nod to the film without a second thought. I felt that I could do justice to the role and I have tried my best to live up to the director's expectations," Sudeep adds.
The actor further claims that Kannada film industry has given him the name and fame and he will never leave Sandalwood for other industries. Sudeep ends on the note that even though he has started getting offers from Tamil and Telugu industries, he has not signed movie yet, as the actor has to complete quite a few Kannada movies.
Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli's techno graphical extravaganza Eega, which also features Samantha and Nani, is doing rocking business at the Box Office.
