Kannada actor Sudeep is gearing up for the release of Dabangg 3, in which he will be seen playing the villain opposite Salman Khan. However, the Pailwaan actor isn't new to Bollywood. He had previously featured in a series of films including Phoonk, Rann and Rakta Charita. But, the actor wasn't a part of any Bollywood project after Rakta Charita 2 until he signed the deal for Dabangg 3. Revealing the reason behind his absence in Bollywood, Sudeep stated in an interview that he did not feel welcomed in the industry.
Sudeep Couldn't Click With Other Actors
According to The Times of India reports, Sudeep found it hard to click with the other actors, back in time when he worked in a few Hindi films. Reportedly, he even noted that he didn't feel welcomed in Bollywood.
Dabangg 3 Treated Him Differently
In another interview with The Indian Express, Sudeep has expressed gratitude towards the Dabangg 3 team for giving him the opportunity to be part of a superhit franchise. A couple of posts he has shared from the sets of the film reflect the amount of fun he had while working with Salman and the rest of the crew.
"I Have Enjoyed A Lot On Set"
"Today if I am looking huge on screen, it is because of the positioning he (Salman Khan) has given me. I have enjoyed a lot on set. They made me feel equally big, wanted, respected and loved. There are no two ways to it and there's no agenda to it. There's only one thing with them. You give your heart to them and they will give you their soul," he added.
Sudeep Plays Balli
Sudeep will be seen as Balli, the villain in Dabangg 3. His first look from the movie was recently launched. The actor is as excited about watching him come face to face with Salman Khan on-screen, as the fans are!
