Actor Kicha Sudeepa says that he can not answer all the controversies surrounding him on daily basis as it would need him to be part of interviews in every channel and newspaper. He was speaking to a private channel in an interview.
Answering a question about the withdrawal of Deepa Sannidhi after being selected to be part of the film Bachchan, Sudeep said that he had no hand in it. "When the whole story was re-narrated to him he asked director Shashank whether he had intimated Deepa Sannidhi of the changes in the story as she was booked much earlier and the final story had not taken its present shape. Then I think Shashank and Deepa Sannidhi discussed with each other and mutually arrived at a decision. And that's it. It was not my decision to select her in the first place. This is true in the case of any of the heroines of the film' says Sudeep.
"I have not interacted much with Deepa Sannidhi, But I know she is very decent girl. I have watched her in a few films like Janoo and she is good as a performing artist. I dont have anything against Deepa, but I really want her to do best of roles' said Sudeepa.
The Eega press conference held in Bengaluru to promote the film and announce the release date turned out to be an exercise of appreciation for actor Sudeep by the speakers present on the dias.

Eega film producer Suresh Babu and director S.S.Rajamouli were in full in praise of Sudeep for his outstanding performance in the role of an anogonist in the film.
Kicha Sudeepa said that his initial anxiety after shooting for the film was that he should not be blamed for bringing disrepute to Rajamouli for a poor selection for the most important role in the film. "I think with the type of appreciations I am hearing now, I am quite relieved. I am sure that S.S.Rajamouli has done his best in the film. Though I have myself directed many films, I just kept out all the my creative thinking outside the sets and just followed the instructions of Rajamouli' said Kicha Sudeepa.
