Sandalwood’s very own Kichcha Sudeep is the one who missed this golden opportunity. His epic movie ‘Eega’ directed by the legendary S S Rajamouli of Bahubali fame was definitely one of its kind. Telugu and other south Indian cine industry looked at Sudeep in awe post Eega. It definitely gave him a major breakthrough. The revenge story of a fly is the one liner of the movie had the potential of taking Sudeep to greater heights.
Though the fly is the ‘her’ of this movie, it is Sudeep’s acting as the antagonist that won accolades. Natural Star Naani and Samantha in lead roles, Sudeep managed to set his foot right through his astounding performance.
After being a very big fan of director S SRajamouli, Karan admits to have watched all his movies till date. He specifically mentions eega as the movie that had great potential to be a grand success, several times bigger than what it became.
Just imagine, had the makers of Eega known that Karan Johar would be interested in distributing it and approached him, not only would the movie be a landmark hit but also give Sudeep a bigger place in Indian cinema. His talent would have been much familiar amongst larger audience and he might have been a bigger star than he is today. Karan even mentioned that he already had a tagline for the movie ‘Eega’ as ‘the revenge of a fly’. This shows how much in awe was he with the movie.
Well, que sera sera; what will be, will be. But after knowing all these facts and hearing it from Karan Johar himself in an interview, fans of Sudeep feel sad to have missed an opportunity for their favorite actor. But since Karan Johar has seen and liked the movie, it also means that he known Sudeep and his talent as well which certainly is the silver lining.
