Real Star Upendra, after working in a string of remakes, has okayed a straight subject, which is titled as Modi, and will be directed by Uday Prakash of Auto Raja and Kalla Malla Sulla fame.
Apparently, Uday Prakash has been working on this script from the past one year. He has readied more than half a dozen versions, which were rejected by Uppi as he was not happy with it before finally accepting the eighth version of the script.
The film will be produced by MN Kumar and Jayashree Devi, under MNK Movies. Vasu will be the executive producer. Director Uday Prakash is in the process of finalizing cast and crew for the film.
Once the script was okayed by Uppi, Uday Prakash zeroed in Modi as the title for the movie. Next challenge for makers was to get this title cleared from the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce as the title is related to a person; indeed a powerful person of the country.
Finally, the title was cleared by KFCC with the tagline - "It is a One Man Show, No Politics Please". The project will be officially announced on Upendra's birthday i.e., September 18. Apart from this, at least 3-4 projects of Uppi will be announced on the same day.
Uday Prakash, who is very confident on the script says that if Upendra had not agreed to be part of this project then he would've not considered making this film, as this script will only suit Upendra.
Also, he clarifies that movie has nothing to do with our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. The team will start shooting from October, once Upendra completes the shoot for his ongoing film Uppi Matthe Hutti Baa, which is in the final stages of production.
