Bigg Boss has become a platform to promote films. In the recent weeks, many actors-filmmakers took the opportunity to publicise their film in the game show. Before last week, we saw K Manju and Ragini Dwivedi promoting their forthcoming Kannada film Ragini IPS. This week, it was the turn of Duniya Suri to publicise his next film Kaddi Pudi, which is releasing this week.
Duniya Suri along with Yogaraj Bhat, who has penned lyrics for a few songs in Kaddi Pudi, were in the Bigg Boss show. The two directors met the anchor and opened up on their friendship and the forthcoming movie. It has to be noted that Suri (as scriptwriter), Bhat and Sudeep had earlier worked in Ranga SSLC way back in 2004.
"Shivaraj Kumar showed how to wave the 'long' in Kannada films with classic Om. Since then, he has displayed it in endless films. How different will be your Kaddi Pudi from his earlier films," Sudeep asked Suri in the show. For which the Anna Bond creator claimed, "It is not a regular rowdyism film. Here, the rowdy tries to convert himself into a good human being and what happens to him when he chooses to live the big bad world of rowdyism is the story of the film."
Suri continues, "We have heard about ex-baddies being killed after they left the profession. Many small-time rowdies have killed the ones who have left rowdyism to only gain popularity. So, I have scripted a story based on it."

Sudeep asked what made him to choose Shivaraj Kumar to act in the film. He said, "I wrote the story keeping Shivanna in mind. Something like building a house after laying the foundation stone."
Bhat And Suri
On his turn, Yogaraj Bhat spoke about the hit track 'Budu buduke maalinga...' from Kaddi Pudi. He also crooned the track in Bigg Boss House.
Sudeep praised about Yogaraj Bhat's magical style of writing lyrics. More importantly, he expressed his surprise over writing meaningless songs and making audience to find their own meaning!
Kaddi Pudi starring Shivaraj Kumar and Radhika Pandit is releasing on May 24. The audio composed by V Harikrishna has become a big hit.
