Sudeep fans went gaga after the wikipedia page about Salman Khan-starrer Tiger Zinda Hai mentioned that the Abhinaya Chakravarthy Sudeep will be a part of it. There were also rumours that Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu will also be a part of film. It further divulged details like Sudeep is playing the role of an ISI agent from Pakistan in the film while renowned actor Girish Karnad will be playing the role of a RAW agency head.
However, the actors are tight-lipped about the Bollywood project. But, film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar had a different tale to narrate. He said, “The shooting is in progress. I won’t comment anything about it now.”
When further questioned about if any actors from the south have been approached, the director gave a firm ‘No’.
As of now, it is not clear if it is just a rumour or if the actors and director are keeping mum about it until an official announcement.
Sudeep isn’t new to Bollywood. He has already made his mark with movies like Phoonk, Rann, Phoonk-2 and Rakta Charitra. The actor was in fact considered Tollywood’s blue-eyed boy after his magnificent performance in Rajamouli’s Eega. The movie released in Hindi as Makki, and fetched him a few Bollywood projects.
As for Tiger Zinda Hai, the film is produced by Aditya Chopra. Currently, the team is busy shooting the film in Austria. The film reunites Salman and Katirna Kaif after a long time.
