Realstar Upendra is on cloud nine as his Super has broken all the previous records of Kannada film industry. The director-turned-actor, who hinted about his possible political entry in the film, has confirmed yesterday that he would join politics in the near future.
When he was asked if the news of his political entry was true or just a gimmick, he replied, “Why can't I enter politics. I am willing to enter the arena in future. But I am not going to join any party. As of now, I have not planned anything. It is in God's hands and if he wishes, then surely I will not hesitate to take the responsibility."
He also cleared the rumour that nobody has invited him to join any party. He went on to say, “ His vision 2030 is not impossible. Whatever he has shown in Super is possible. But people should wake up and I am just trying to ignite the spark inside them."
Answering when it all got started, Uppi said, “It has been my long term dream. I never spoke about it because people would laugh at me. In fact, I entered cinema because of it. I wanted to recognise myself first before jumping into politics. It is very difficult to serve the people without power. I agree that there are people, who have served without power. But, what I feel is, if we have it we can do it better."
Talking about political satires in the film Super, Upendra said, “I haven't done too much research on any individual. I believe in the media and whatever you guys have shown through TV and print, I have shown in the film."
