Express News Service

Upendra is now busy with his political career, but there are fans who are waiting to see him on silver screen. City Express gets details of his latest movie Uppi Rupee, which we hear will be one of his last before he plunges into political field full-time.

K Madesh

The actor, who is completing shoot of his current film Home Minister directed by Sri Hari, has allocated dates for the second schedule of Uppi Rupee from October 8. Director K Madesh is gearing up for that and has planned the shoot in Thailand for seven days.

“We have completed 15 days of shoot, and the current schedule is planned for 10 days, out of which we will be shooting a few portions in Thailand,” says Madesh. “We are short of time and so we need to complete the shoot for this film by November.”

Take note that Uppi Rupee will be from the star when he is about to plunge into politics. It is on Modi’s demonetisation and its impact on the country.

Upendra character is interesting too, Mahesh reveals. “He plays a common man, who starts off with negative traits and then transforms into a hero,” he says. “His character will be a mirror image of corrupt officials, and only Uppi can do this political drama well”.

Uppi was involved with the movie’s scripting and sat with the screenplay, along with MS Ramesh..
Uppi Rupee, produced by Vijaylakshmi Urs, also features Rachita Ram as the female lead. The film has Sadhu Kokila’s music and cinematography by Rajesh Khatta.
