Actor-filmmaker Sudeep will most likely play the lead role in the Kannada remake of Balupu. According to reports, producer N. Kumar has recently acquired the remake rights, and plans to make the film with Sudeep. In addition to portraying the main character, Sudeep is expected to direct the film as well.
Sudeep’s career is on a high note after the success of Ranna, a remake of the Telugu film Attarintiki Daaredhi. He has also featured in remakes of Vikramarkudu and Mirchi. Interestingly, he has been the lead actor and director in all these projects as well.
A source says that the film will be launched on September 2, to coincide with Sudeep’s birthday. Sudeep will also be starting a project with K.S. Ravi Kumar in the coming days. Meanwhile, his fans can spot him in Rajamouli’s Baahubali, in which he’s played a cameo.
