Sudeep plays Vedhalapuram's Commander-in-Chief Thalapathy Jalatharangan in filmmaker Chimbu Devan's 2015 Tamil historical fantasy film Puli, who seeks to dethrone and kill the queen Yavanarani. Thalapathy Vijay, a Tamil celebrity, played the protagonist in the film.


The love story of a couple — Jani and Bindu — was at the heart of this 2018 Hindi film, which was shot in Kannada. Sudeep, who played a strong millionaire in the film, is smitten with Bindu, but soon discovers that she is in love with Jani, not him. Sudeep is enraged and murders Jani. Jani, on the other hand, reincarnates as a fly in order to exact revenge.  


Vaale, directed by S Mahendra, starred Sudeep in a dual role as twin brothers Shiva and Deva. While Shiva is the main character in the film, Deva is the possessive antagonist who is willing to go to any extent to win his love, even if it means harming his brother.
