Earlier this month, Sudeep addressed a joint press conference with Karnataka CM Basavraj Bommai. As quoted by news agency ANI, Sudeep had said, "I had no necessity to come here, and I have not come here for any platform or money. I have come here only for a person. I have high regard for CM Mama (Bommai). That's why I am announcing that I am giving my full support to Bommai sir. As a citizen, I totally respect certain decisions PM Modi has taken, but that's my perspective. But that has got nothing to do with me sitting here today".

Previously when speculations started that Sudeep will join the BJP, an alleged threat letter was received by his manager. This prompted the police to register a case. As per ANI, the police said that the actor's manager Jack Manju received a letter from an unknown person, threatening to release the actor's "private video" on social media.

Acting on the complaint lodged by the actor's manager, the Puttenahalli police registered a case under sections 504, 506 and 120 (B) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Fans saw Sudeep last seen in Kabzaa, a Kannada-language period action film. Directed by R Chandru, the film also features Upendra, Shiva Rajkumar, Shriya Saran, Sudha, Murali Sharma, and Nawab Shah among others.
