Sudheer Babu, the former professional badminton player says that his role in V has been the most authentic and meaningful character he has played. He also says that the film has been more strenuous, because of the intense action sequences which needed more preparation in terms of physical fitness.
Babu became the Number 1 ranked badminton player of Andhra Pradesh as well as Karnataka. He has played alongside Pullela Gopichand as a doubles partner. He is scheduled to play the role of Gopichand in the latter's biopic.
Gopichand was quite happy to have Sudheer essaying his role in the biopic. Sharing his excitement, the ace-badminton player called him a perfect choice for the movie as the superstar also a professional badminton player. In fact, Sudheer has been Gopichand’s doubles partner. “He has also been my training partner, so he knows what I did and how I did it, and that’ll contribute a lot,” Gopichand told Pinkvilla in an interview a year back.
He made his acting debut with the film "Ye Maaya Chesave" in 2010 and was later seen in films like "Shiva Manasulo Shruti", "Mosagaallaku Mosagaadu" and "Nannu Dochukunduvate" among many others.
