His latest release Gunde Jhallumandi has come as a relief to his sagging career. Starring Aditi Sharma and directed by Madan, Gunde Jhallumandi is a decent entertainer that caters to family and college audiences. Ekalavyudu, another of his projects, is nearing completion.
Producer Lokesh Dutt, whose film Call Centre was recently released, has approached Uday Kiran for the lead role in his next project. But he came away reeling, as the not-so-hot Uday Kiran demanded Rs. 60 lakhs as his fee.
It remains to be seen whether Uday Kiran is able to command this price with an average hit like Gunde Jhallumandi to back him up.
