Known for different kind of films, Upendra seems to have found a
movie, which suits his image. The Real Star has reportedly set his
eyes on the successful bilingual (Tamil-Telugu) movie of 2011,
Kanchana to remake it in Kannada.
The psycho-thriller, which emerged as a surprising hit of the
year, has impressed Upendra. As a result, he has given a nod to
star in the Kannada version of the movie. Producer Rama Narayanan
has acquired the Sandalwood rights of Kanchana and he is
planning to direct the film.
Rama Narayanan has confirmed the news and has claimed that he is
directing the remake film. While Upendra will enact the role played
by Raghav Lawrewnce, Lakshmi Rai will portray the same role in
Kannada. Umashree and Shurti are also in the cast and the hunt for
the character of transgender played by Sarath Kumar is on.
