Actor Sundeep Kishan is upbeat about his upcoming movie Ooru Peru Bhairavakona, which is due in cinemas this Friday. During the promotions, he also took a moment to reflect on his previous film Captain Miller, where he shared screen space with Dhanush and Shivarajkumar.

Sundeep recalled how he bonded with his colleagues from distinct industries. While Shivarajkumar is one of the seasoned stars in the Kannada film industry, Dhanush is a big name in the Tamil film industry. While Sundeep has a few Tamil titles to his credit, the majority of his work remains in Telugu.

Captain Miller provided ample opportunity for members of three different industries to develop strong camaraderie. "Shivarajkumar garu is a gem of a person. He has no airs about him and always remains jolly and friendly. When we were shooting in Chennai, I sent him food from my restaurant. He liked the food, and the next day he visited the restaurant, met the staff, took photos with them, and even paid tips to them. Who would do that, especially a star of his stature?," said Sundeep.

Sundeep looks up to Dhanush to get inspired and push his limitations as an actor. "Dhanush anna and I have a very interesting relationship. I have also worked under his direction. Dhanush's performance in Selvaraghavan has always been an inspiration for my acting career. Some of the scenes are beyond our imaginations," he added.

Sundeep has played a key role in the D50, which will mark Dhanush's return to directorial after a gap of seven years.

Sundeep's next movie

Written and directed by Arun Matheswaran, Captain Miller made its OTT debut last week on Amazon Prime Video.

In the meantime, Sundeep is busy promoting Ooru Peru Bhairavakona. While talking to the press, he expressed confidence in the movie's potential to resonate with the audience. This film is expected to give Sundeep a much-needed break at the box office.

Billed as a mystery thriller, Ooru Peru Bhairavakona is written and directed by Vi Anand. And it also stars Kavya Thapar, Varsha Bollamma, Vennela Kishore and Harsha Chemudu.
