Upendra-Hariprriya to star in K Madesh’s directorial
The Real Star and the director were supposed to team up for Uppi Rupee, which did not take off after the official launch
Upendra will be collaborating with K Madesh for a yet-to-be-titled film. The actor and the director were supposed to come together for Uppi Rupee, with Rachita Ram playing the female lead. However, the film did not take off, even though there was an official launch. Now the two are joining hands for another film, which will be produced by Muniraju.
This new project will feature Hariprriya as the female lead. She will be sharing screen space with Upendra for the first time. Director Madesh says the film will revolve around money laundering. “We were supposed to work together for Uppi Rupee, which, as of now, has been halted. We are now teaming up for an interesting story that has universal appeal. We plan to start it by May-end.”
While the makers are in the process of finalising the rest of the cast and crew, they are bringing together the father-son combo of Sadhu Kokila and Surag Kokila to compose the film’s music.
Upendra is currently busy with a long list of projects which includes the ready-for-release Home Minister, as well as Ravi Chandra and Buddhivantha 2, which are in the final stages of shooting. He is currently shooting for R Chandru’s Kabza.
Upendra has also given a green signal to director Navaneeth of Karva fame for a project produced by Tarun Shivappa. Another film with director Shashank is yet to go on floors, while a film with director Madesh was recently announced.
Meanwhile, Hariprriya’s next will be Amruthamathi, a film directed by Baraguru Ramachandrappa. She has also completed the shooting for a yet-to-be-titled comedy-drama, in which she is paired opposite Gurunandan.
