Comedian Chikkanna is making his debut as a hero with Upadhyaksha. An official announcement about the project was made on Monday, when the team also unveiled the film’s title.

The title Upadhyaksha is derived from the character Chikkanna played in the Sharan-starrer Adhakshya. The film will be helmed by director Chandra Mohan, and jointly produced by Smitha Umapathy and Nirmala. Srinivas is producing the film under the banner, Umapathy Films, and DN Cinemas.

Chikkanna, who has featured in comic roles in more than 200 films, has shifted tracks to comedy entertainers.

In all likelihood, Upadhyaksha will go on floors in the second week of December. The team is currently busy with the preparation work. The production house has also finalised Arjun Janya as the music director and Sudhakar S Raj as the cinematographer.
