There was lots of buzz that Upendra has approached Deepika
Padukone for his prestigious project Upendra 2.
However, the director-turned-actor has denied the news and said
that he has not offered the film to anyone yet.
Clarifying to Oneindia, Uppi said, "The reports of Deepika
Padukone being approached by me for Upendra 2 are
baseless. I have not finalised the cast yet. And I can only say
that the movie introduces new faces to film industry."
Gorgeous Deepika Padukone, who started her acting career in
Kannada film industry with the film titled Aishwarya
starring Upendra, never returned to Kannada films after going to
Bollywood. It was reported that the actress was approached by the
A star for Upendra 2, which is a sequel to
Upendra, and she was considering the offer. Meanwhile,
Uppi is busy giving a final touch to the script.
However, the movie Upendra had a psycho-philosophical
subject that tells the state of a 'self'. His inward feeling
towards sex, love and success were portrayed by three main female
characters played by Raveena Tandon, Prema and Damini. The movie
drew a lot of criticism for its bold dialogues and scenes.
Nonetheless, it had become a massive hit among the masses.
