Upendra will reportedly star in the Kannada remake of Telugu blockbuster Soggade Chinni Nayana.
"The remake rights have been acquired and Upendra also plans to direct it, besides playing the lead. The project is expected to go on the floors in a couple of months," a source close to the Kannada superstar revealed.
Soggade Chinni Nayana, one of the biggest blockbusters of this year so far, featured Akkineni Nagarjuna in dual roles. Directed by Kalyan Krishna, the film also starred Lavanya Tripathi and Ramya Krishnan.
Having raked in over Rs.75 crore at the ticket window, Nagarjuna and director Krishna have already announced a sequel.
In the film, Nagarjuna played a ghost and horror angle worked quite well in the film's favour. Upendra, meanwhile, has started working for another remake, Oh My God, also starring Sudeep.
