When he was asked if the news of his political entry was true or just a gimmick, he replied, “Why can't I enter politics. I am willing to enter the arena in future. But I am not going to join any party. As of now, I have not planned anything. It is in God's hands and if he wishes, then surely I will not hesitate to take the responsibility."
He also cleared the rumour that nobody has invited him to join any party. He went on to say, “ His vision 2030 is not impossible. Whatever he has shown in Super is possible. But people should wake up and I am just trying to ignite the spark inside them."
Answering when it all got started, Uppi said, “It has been my long term dream. I never spoke about it because people would laugh at me. In fact, I entered cinema because of it. I wanted to recognise myself first before jumping into politics. It is very difficult to serve the people without power. I agree that there are people, who have served without power. But, what I feel is, if we have it we can do it better."
Talking about political satires in the film Super, Upendra said, “I haven't done too much research on any individual. I believe in the media and whatever you guys have shown through TV and print, I have shown in the film."
