One of the most awaited projects this year, a sequel after 16 years, Uppi-2 has received U/A certificate from the Censor board and is ready to hit the screens.
Uppi-2, which is a sequel to 1999 psychological thriller Upendra, is scheduled to be released on August 14. Returning to direction after five years, his last one being Super, the actor was seen pre-occupied almost all the time since the past few years.
Featuring Australian actress/model Kristina Akheeva and pyaarge aagbittaithe girl Parul Yadav, the film is touted to be easy to understand but difficult to follow! Putting his out-of –the-box ideas on film, Uppi has been very busy and had even shunned away from cellphones and social media till he finished the shoot.
Upendra’s better half, Priyanka, is also said to have acted in a couple of scenes in the film. Priyanka also doubles as the producer.
The film, perhaps Upendra’s biggest and most ambitious project has been in the limelight, through social media in the past few days. Though free promotion, in the words of noted actor Jaggesh, the movie was criticized for its songs and their candor, where Uppi apparently rebukes other actors. The twitter war between Jaggesh and Uppi’s fans reached peak, but the movie received all the attention.
However, Uppi decided to stay mum during the situation. Though unclear why the actor took such an unconventional path, we believe he will rebut with his answer - houseful theatres across the state.
