Uppi confident about Home Minister
The actor says that the makers waited for him for four years, and their patience has paid off
Four years ago, Uppi was approached for Home Minister. After much dilly-dallying, the popular actor gave the go-ahead for the film, directed by Sujay K Srihari. And on Saturday, he had a media interaction for the film, which is currently in the post-production phase.
“If I have to describe my upcoming film in one sentence, then I'd say it’s one with a double meaning. The title itself has two sides to it. People have been assuming it is a political film, but I’m going to let them keep guessing. Home Minister can be a term that’s used in politics as well as to describe someone at home,” explains the actor about the family entertainer.
“Four years ago, when I was occupied with other films, the producer came up with this subject. The moment I heard the plot, I was interested. At the same time, I was apprehensive and wondered if I could pull-off such a subject and character. I discussed this with him and requested him to look for somebody else, but they (the team) were confident that I could pull off the role,” he says, adding, “Director Srihari and producer,Poorna Naidu waited for me for almost two years. Their patience has paid off and I am saying this with confidence only after watching the first copy.”
Upendra, who plays a techie in Home Minister, says he was surrounded by ‘beautiful girls’ in the film. “Poorna kept adding beautiful heroines to his film. But having said that, every character in the film is relevant,” he says. With Vedhika playing the female lead, Home Minister has music director Ghibran making his Kannada debut.
