Whenever a new movie hits the theatres, one question that comes to most of audience and media is how different is that movie form other films. This question seems to have irked director-turned-actor Upendra, who is making his comeback to direction after 10 years with the movie Super (Hand Symbol). Uppi says that he is totally confused and upset with it.
As a part of promotion of Super, real star Upendra was on a programme of a leading FM radio station of Bangalore yesterday. Talking about his film, the Radio RJ of station asked how different was Super from his previous films. Answering him, the superstar expressed his disappointment. He said, "I'm totally confused with the phrase 'different cinema'. I really don't understand this term, which has been often asked to many filmmakers."
According to Upendra, most of his directorial ventures deal with the things that he has undergone in his real life. He said, "Basically, I'm a director and one of the Kannada producers asked me to act in a film. So I acted in the film A besides directing it. As a writer, I included my own experience and bad condition that I have undergone in my life."
He added, "In addition to these things, I have included some of the commercial elements to please the audience. That's all. I haven't done anything different. I request you not to take these things in other way and brand me as different director. It hurts me very badly. I'm not at all different director."
However, Uppi's latest directorial venture Super, which is releasing across the state today, has created lot of curiosity among the audience because he has not revealed most of details of the films other than actress Nayantara, Tulip Joshi, musician V Harikrishna and cameraman Ashok Kashyap. He has not even given hint about the story of the film. Now, it should be seen how the audience would respond to his film.
