Sudheer Babu, who donned the role of a ‘bad man’ in the Hindi film ‘Bhaagi’, a remake of Telugu super hit film ‘Varsham’, says that he was skeptical about doing the film as he had a busy schedule. Sudheer shared the screen space with Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor in the film. Sudheer says that Tiger motivates him a lot.
“He is my inspiration. It’s not easy to match up with him because he learning gymnastics and martial arts, right from his childhood. To match his pace, I had to pull up my socks and I trained very hard with him,” he says and adds “Tiger is a very good co-star. He always made sure that I never got hurt while doing action sequences.”
Speaking about the Shraddha Kapoor, Sudheer says, “Shraddha is very bubbly off-screen. But while acting, she will make sure that all the people on sets are silent, so that she can focus on her acting.”
Throwing light on his part in the Sabbir Khan directorial, he says, “I play Raghav in the film. He is a champion in Kalaripayattu, martial arts and boat racing. He is a subtle, smart and it’s hard to read his mind. There was a huge scope for the performance.”
Sudheer informs that when it comes to acting he goes like a blank paper on sets, “Sabbir gave me a couple of movies for reference before the shoot. I watched those films and I knew exactly that in what way I should behave. I used to make sure that I got the dialogues two to three days before the shoot for an effective performance.”
Sudeer shares that he underwent rigorous training for the role. “I, Tiger and Shraddha trained for almost 20-25 days in Bangkok before the shoot. It is an action flick and I think that kind of training is required,” he says.
Besides actors and production house, he says, Sabbir Khan’s story narration was the other factor that pulled him to this project. “Nowadays antagonists are being loved by every person. When Sabbir came and explained me about the role, he said only thing ‘You should look like a hero, people should fall in love with you’,” he shares.
Sudheer says that that he is not nervous about his debut in Bollywood and for him it is just another feather in his cap. “There is nothing special about it. Many people stepped into Bollywood but only a few people have succeeded. I feel I too will leave my mark in Hindi film industry,” he signs off.
