The talented actor will soon be making heroic debut in B-Town with biopic on ace badminton player Pullela Gopichand. The film to be made as Telugu-Tamil bilingual will be directed by Praveen Sattaru.
It is also heard that, the filmmakers are toying with the idea of making the film as trilingual, shooting an English version too. Sudheer and Gopichand are overseeing the pre production works. It may be mentioned here that, Sudheer Babu was a badminton player, before entering films.
