Real Star Upendra is known for his unique style of movies. Every movie of his, tends to be strange and enigmatic. Upendra will now add another feat to his achievement list. The actor's next movie will not have any title. The movie will be registered and released with a symbol instead of a title.
The movie has been directed by Srinivas Raju and produced by C.R. Manohar. The movie was earlier titled as Basavanna. However, the movie title was not appreciated by the Lingayat Community. Basavanna was a 10th century philosopher and social reformer. The Lingayat community is the follower of the great philosopher and also happens to be the dominant community in Karnataka.
Former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa had appealed in the Legislative Assembly that the movie title should be changed. After a public outrage against the movie being titled as Basavanna, the film makers decided to drop the movie name.
The director of the movie said that the movie will now carry a symbol instead of the title. The director also claimed that the movie will be registered under that symbol. This will be the first time a film is being registered with a symbol instead of title. It will be interesting to know how the producers will market the movie without a name.
