Upendra`s Topiwala directed by RJ Sreeni and produced by Kanakapura Srikanth completed its shoot and is geared up for release on 25th January 2012.
Producer Srikanth said that the shoot is complete except for one song to be picturised on Upendra and some dancers. This song is expected to be shot before the end of this month.
He said the post production work is in full swing as the digital work is fast progressing. "The re-recording has to be done by Hari Krishna which will start in a few days. We will release the movie on January 25", Srikanth said.
The story and screenplay of Topiwala is written by Upendra himself while director RJ Sreeni has written the dialogues. Sreeni had earlier won national recognition for his short film Simply Kai Law Some. Harikrishna is the music director of the film.
Upendra who teams up with Bhavana in the film said that he had liked Sreeni`s work in the short film and wanted Sreeni to direct him.
"Sreeni immediately came out with a story idea which was good, but I thought it needed some commercial bits. I narrated a story line which I have been thinking about for some days. Sreeni agreed with me and said that the story can be developed into a good commercial entertainer. Then the story and script shaped gradually. Sreeni wanted to retain his own team of technicians. But such a project needed a big producer.
"I could only think of Kanakapura Sreenivas and K.P.Srikanth to produce this big film. Both of them were more than willing to produce the film. And now we have completed the shooting and dubbing. The film is based on incidents that happen in contemporary times. Political incidents are part of the script. It is a humorous commentary on every distortion that we see in our society", said Upendra.
Sreeni said that he had a good script for Upendra in his hand and did not face any problems during the shooting. "The film is fun filled and even a song picturised in Switzerland is sure to make you smile", said Sreeni.
Actress Maithreyi who is playing a special role in the film said that it was her dream to work with a big star like Upendra.
Kanakapura Sreenivas remembered that Omkaara, their first film with Upendra was a big hit and had created a bench mark by earning a crore in the first week itself. "Now, we have Topiwala with a young team which is sure to create new bench marks", said Sreenivas.
