Upendra has surprised his fans and audiences with his decision. Just when we thought that he would start shooting for Dr Modi next, as announced, he has silently started shooting for different project directed by Naganna.
The film is tentatively titled as Kanneshwara, and the team has started shooting in Bangalore. Director confirms that even though the title sounds to be tailor-made for a devotional flick, this will be an out and out commercial entertainer.
Neither the producer nor the director has not confirmed the star cast but we hear that film has a couple of big names in star cast. Also as publicized, this is not the remake of Hindi film Special 26, and will be an original subject.
Mohanlal, who made his Kannada debut with Mythri (his role in Love was more of a guest appearance) will be sharing screen space with Upendra for the first time. It will be nothing less than feast for fans to see two superstars together on silver screen.
Vedhika, who made a strong comeback to Kannada film industry with Shivanna's Shivalinga, will play the female lead in this film. It is said that Vedhika has got a role, which is as important as Uppi's role in the film.
With Uppi, Mohanlal and Vedhika, who are popular in multiple languages are coming together, and we can expect the makers to plan the film in multiple languages to make use of the star cast to the maximum extent.
Naganna and Upendra combo, have given the blockbusters like Kutumba and Gowramma. They last collaborated for Dubai Babu, which was a flop. All the three films were remakes and it is interesting to know that, both are collaborating on a straight subject this time.
Upendra just has a few days of pending work for Upendra Matthe Hutti Baa and he will complete his work by end of November. After that he will completely dedicate his time for Kanneshwara.
