There  is  a weird rumour doing  the  rounds   in  the Telugu film industry. Apparently Sundeep Kishan is all set to star  in  a  bio-pic on  the  failed star Uday Kiran. Uday had a  string of successes  in the early  2000s .Thereafter  his career went downhill.  More than all of this, Uday Kiran is  known  for his broken  engagement with mega-star Chiranjeevi’s daughter.

However Sundeep says there is  no  truth to this  rumour. “I  don’t know where or how it started . But I am  not doing any such film. In fact I am not doing any  biopic on any person living  or  dead at all.”

Further investigation reveals that there  is a producer  in Tollywood going around offering this project to every star, major  or minor. Apparently, he even had  the  audacity to  offer  it to  Chiranjeevi’s son Ramcharan Teja.

Though  Sundeep has done films in Tamil and Hindi, he regards Telugu as  his home ground. “I was born and  brought  up in Andhra. Telugu is  my mother tongue. But I also speak Tamil fluently.  At the beginning of my career as an  actor I did a Tamil, a  Telugu and a Hindi  film. I think language is  no  longer a barrier to appreciating good cinema.”

Early  in  his career Sundeep had done a  Hindi film Shor In  The  City  directed by Raj & DK.  The directorial duo is  now designing a fresh  Hindi launch  for Sundeep. “Raj and DK are like family. I thought their Stree had such an interesting role  for Rajkummar Rao. Not like a conventional hero  but a  relatable character. That’s  the  kind of role I’d like to play . Raj and DK are  planning something completely out of  the  box for me in Hindi.”

In the meanwhile  Sundeep is pleased that most  of his Tamil and Telugu films are  dubbed into Hindi. “I was shooting in Kashmir and I  was  very surprised when  the locals recognized me as the  guy in  Prasthanam , my first release which is now being remade into Hindi,  or the guy in Maanaagaram. They had seen most of my  Telugu and Tamil films  dubbed into Hindi.”

Sundeep is also surprised  by his  swelling fan following. “I never thought of myself as  particularly eligible when I was in college. But now even  when guys come for selfies they say it’s for  their sister  or girlfriend. I am happy with the female attention. But for now I am very single.”
