Sudeep, happy birthday!

The Kannada actor, who has also forayed into Bollywood, turns 40 today

Born on August 2, 1973, as Sudeep celebrates a milestone birthday today, he seems to be at the very peak of his eventful career.

Last year’s hit film, Eega (Naan Ee in Tamil), in which he played a villain hounded by a vengeful house fly, earned him nation-wide recognition and even more fans for his versatile acting prowess.

An award-winning actor who earned recognition for his films such as Huccha, Nandhi and Swati Mutthu, Sudeep has, of late, made negative roles his forte.

He’s been a Ram Gopal Varma favourite, acting in Bollywood flicks such as Phoonk, Rann and Rakht Charitra. Sudeep’s roles in the film industry extend to director, writer, playback singer and even dubbing artiste. This year, he’s starred in the Kannada Bachchan and Varadhanayaka and has also several cameos in Tamil and Telugu lined up.

Here’s wishing this very stylish actor a very happy birthday!
