Rumours are making rounds about Upendra's entry into politics. This news has created lot of curiosity among thousands of Uppi fans. They are eagerly waiting to know when he will launch his political career. Several fans advise the Super director not to join politics, while many support his stand and encourage him to launch his own political party.
Several Upendra fans have expressed their opinions in the comment box below the report published on Oneindia web page. Many Uppi fans are very excited that their hero is turning a politician. Shankar writes, "Hi Uppi, it is really great. I hope u will make a good politician. I wish u good luck. Love u." Current political situation in Karnataka is completely undisciplined and corrupt. There is a dire need of a man like the hero in the movie Super to bring a transformation in the state. A fan writes, "It is the right time. Karnataka need to replace all the corrupt leaders. Build own party to win as a single majority. Good luck."
Leading political parties like BJP, Congress and JD(S) are said to have invited the director-turned-actor to join their parties. But many fans object him joining any of these parties. They feel that he should launch his own party. Yash writes, "It is good news but if it is his own party." Tejas writes, "Guru nenna swantha party katko guru. Amele ella super. Nijvaglu politics ge bandmele Bangalore na madari state aagi madthya antha gotu." (Guru build your own political party. Then everything will be super. I am sure once you enter politics, you will convert Bangalore into a model city.)
But Some fans are afraid that Upendra would quit films, if he enter politics. So they request him not to say good bye to filmmaking. Ananth writes, "Sir do anything, but don't leave direction sir." A few fans consider politics as a dirty place and advise him not enter that place. Srinidhi opines, "I think I'm not too sure. 'I think' I tell it again 'I think' you might lose fans if you join the polluted place."
Manju writes, "What Uppi Anna... You r a real star anna. Why do u want to reel star (Aswasaneya Nayaka)? But still I don't know what u r planning to do. Because for politicians and revolutionary, we have lots of films like Chakravyuha (Ambarish), Kicha (Sudeep). We respect whatever your r. But don't make MISSSSS---- TAKEEEE...... in any step. Because u have lots of followers watching your each step and lots of enemies wanted to pull ur legs. Good luck."
