Kichcha Sudeep is currently promoting his upcoming film, Vikrant Rona. During the film's recent event, he compared Bollywood films that didn't do well at the box office to cricketer Virat Kohli struggling with form.

At the Vikrant Rona event, Kichcha Sudeep said, “A lot of films are made in a year, not every film does well. A couple of films do, a couple of films don't. That doesn't mean that we generalise and say it (the industry) is dominating. There are good times for everything. If the Hindi film industry wasn't doing great films, if it didn't have great people, how would you sustain for so many years.”
"It's just a matter of time. It's like Virat Kohli being out of form for a while. Are you going to take away his records? It doesn't work that way... Every industry is standing by its potential," the actor added.
The Bollywood film industry has been struggling at the ticket counter with many big budget films such as Ranbir Kapoor's Shamshera, Kangana Ranaut's Dhaakad and many others performing poorly at the box office. Meanwhile, movies from south film industry like KGF Chapter 2, RRR, Pushpa, Vikram have done exceptionally well at the box office.
The Hindi film industry has so far only seen hits such as, Alia Bhatt's Gangubai Kathiawadi, Anupam Kher's The Kashmir Files, Kartik Aaryan's Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Varun Dhawan's Jugjugg Jeeyo.
Sudeep's film Vikrant Rona, a 3D fantasy action-adventure film. is directed by Anup Bhandari. It will be released on July 28 in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi. Actor Salman Khan, who worked with Sudeep in Dabangg 3, is presenting the film in north India through his banner Salman Khan Films (SKF).
