The speculations around the Real Star Upendra starrer Brahma - The Leader have been cleared by director R Chandru. The first look of the movie, which had Uppi in the warrior attire, was prompting speculations that the film might be a historical movie. But the director R Chandru has cleared that Brahma is not a historical movie, but it is a modern day family entertainer.
Speaking to a leading daily, Chandru said, "Our film is a modern-day family entertainer, with the right amount of romance, action and sentiment included. There is, however, a 10-minute story arc that is set in the 16th century, which sees Upendra play a warrior."
Brahma - The Leader, which is the first combination of Upendra and director R Chandru is in the final schedule of the shooting, which is taking place in Nelamangala, near Bangalore. It is reported that the movie is getting ready with the budget of Rs 3 crores, and the crew have separately spent Rs 1 crore for a particular shot.
The trilingual movie, which is simultaneously made in Kannada, Telugu and Tamil, also features Pranitha, Sonu Sood, Nasar, Ananth Nag, Ranghayana Raghu, Sadhu Kokila, Bullet Prakash, Suchendra Prasad, Sumitra and others in the important roles.
