Sudeep says that few people from the film industry watched the movie Just Maath Maathali and suggested to dub it in Tamil. “This is the reason why we chose to dub it,” TOI quotes the star as saying. The Kicha star adds, “I always felt that this was a good film that should be dubbed in other languages too.”
Another biggest reason behind Sudeep's decision to dub JMM in Tamil must be its female lead, which is played by Ramya aka Divya Spandana. The actress has managed to have a big fan following with her debut movie Kuthu. Sudeep seemed to have planned to cash in on her popularity in Kollywood.
However, Just Maath Maathalli is considered as the most pet project of Sudeep. Besides direction, he has also played the hero in the movie. The movie has a beautiful story, music and star cast, but it had got an average response in Kannada. The reason behind it is its dragging narration.
