Actor Darshan springs a surprise, says Sudeep isn't his friend

Kannada actor Darshan Thoogudeepa took everyone by surprise on Sunday night by calling off his friendship with fellow artiste Sudeep.

“Me & Sudeep aren’t Friends Anymore. We are just Actors working for Kannada Industry. No more speculations please. That’s the end of it (sic),” he tweeted.

Hours later, Darshan took to Facebook to dispel rumours that his Twitter handle was hacked. Referring to one of Sudeep’s television interviews, he said, “ I was hurt after seeing the video. Sudeep claims that he ensured the lead role for me in Majestic movie which is false. Sudeep should clarify for making a false statement (sic).”

‘Majestic’ was Darshan’s first film in a lead role and turned out to be a big hit.
Sudeep is yet to comment on the announcement. 

Chintana A V, who has directed Darshan in an upcoming film ‘Chakravarthy’, said “minor differences” between the two actors might have forced the ‘Challenging Star’ to end the relationship. Actor Ambareesh is likely to broker peace between them, he added.

Sudeep often wished Darshan on important occasions through his tweets, but the latter rarely responded. Both are A-List actors in the industry and have a large fan following.

Public display of disaffection is nothing new in the industry. Actor Yash once targeted Darshan, Sudeep and Upendra through dialogues in his film ‘Masterpiece’ (2015) while Upendra and Sudeep paid him in kind on social media.

Fans of Yash and Sudeep clashed recently in Gangavati taluk, Koppal district, over the placing of the actors’ life-size posters. Police had to use canes to disperse them.
