Love is in the air for Upendra
The actor will relive his college years in a recently-signed film directed by R Chandru, which will see him playing a love guru
The combination of R Chandru and Upendra promises to be unique. Their collaboration is causing much excitement among the fraternity and fans who are wondering what the duo will now offer. Taking a cue from Uppi’s film, Super, the director’s next film, titled I Love You, will be represented with a symbol and an image. CE got a glimpse of the design created by the makers, which features a heart-shaped logo with an emoticon showing a boy and girl about to share a kiss.
The director, who has a penchant for emotional love stories, has been showcasing it in different ways. ‘‘Brahma, which brought us together was a mass hit. This time, the audience will see both the class and the mass. As I had mentioned earlier, I want to bring back the trends of films like A and Upendra,” he explains.
Chandru reveals that in I Love You, Uppi will be playing a college sweetheart. “The film is based on a college love story, and will bring in Uppi’s philosophy about love,” he says.
I Love You comes with a tag line, Ninne Preethisitini, and will feature Upendra in three shades. Currently, a look test is taking place with the actor, for which the team has brought in a photographer from Bollywood. “We’ve just done a look test for one of the shades. The others will happen before we have the launch shot,” he says.
Chandru is now in the process of finalising the cast and technicians for the film.
