Kiccha Sudeep, who turned 40 recently, has revealed an interesting information about Vijay's 58th movie directed by Chimbudevan. The Kannada superstar has said that the fantasy-adventure project is made with a mammoth budget of Rs.80-90 crores!
In a candid chat with a Kannada entertainment channel, Sudeep has opened up about the Tamil movie. "It is a challenging project made with the budget of Rs.80-90 crores. The discussions related to the film have been going on for the movie for 7-8 months."
Sudeep has said that he is very excited to work with big names of the Indian films. He is happy because he has got an opportunity to work with his favourite actress Sridevi and Illayathalapathy Vijay.
"Sridevi is my favourite actress and then there is Illayathalapathy which makes the project interesting. I have a challenging role in the movie and I am eagerly looking forward to work with the stars," Sudeep said in his special interview to the channel.
Sudeep claims that the movie will be made in three languages - Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. But it will not be dubbed in Kannada. The Sandalwood actor has not revealed about his role in the movie, which is presently called by the name 'Vijay 58' by media and audience.
Sudeep As Baddie?
It is believed that Sudeep will be seen in the role of a villain. Director Chimbudevan was inspired by the actor's performance in Naan Ee, the Tamil version of Telugu movie Eega, to cast him in the role.
Apart from Sudeep, Vijay and Sridevi, Shruti Hassan is also in the cast. She is likely to romance the Illayathalapathy in the film.
Sudeep was supposed to do a movie with KS Ravikumar before starting 'Vijay 58'. But it was postponed after the director decided to do Rajinikanth's Lingaa.
Project Takes Off
Sudeep's movie with KS Ravikumar will start once the director completes Lingaa. It is likely to start in 2015.
Script Getting Ready
Meanwhile, director Chimbudevan is giving final touches to the script. The movie was supposed to take off in September. But it has been delayed as the movie requires a lot of planning due to the huge budget.
