The launch event of Upendra's next

June 3 marks a special occasion for all the Real Star Upendra fans as he launches his much-awaited directorial on the day. The film (currently titled 'U-I' will be officially launched at a grand muhurtha event on Friday, Jun 3 and a few of Uppi's colleagues and friends from the industry will be seen in attendance. The team took to social media to share special posters and announce that Kiccha Sudeep, Shiva Rajkumar, Daali Dhananjaya, and Duniya Vijay will be gracing the event.

Upendra returns to the director's chair after a five-year gap, having previously made Uppi 2 in which he also starred as the lead. Having begun his career as an assistant and dialogue writer on Kashinath's films, Upendra made his directorial debut in 1992 with Tharle Nan Maga and went on to make many cult hits in the course. His 1995 film Om which stars Shiva Rajkumar and Prema in the lead is one of the biggest commercial successes of Kannada Cinema and still regarded as a cultural phenomenon by the fans. Upendra, interestingly, never aspired to be an actor but had to cast himself as the lead in the 1998 film 'A' after the initial choice dropped out due to unknown reasons. 

The upcoming film will be Upendra's tenth outing as a director and will be produced by K.P. Sreekanth and G. Manoharan. The first look poster, in which he is seen in a grim reaper-like avatar atop a horned horse, has piqued the curiosities of his fans who are now waiting with bated breath to know more about the project. One can expect to learn more about the cast and crew of the film in the coming days.

On the other hand, Upendra will go pan-India with R. Chandru's Kabzaa, a film action drama set in the gangster world. Upendra plays the main role with Vikrant Rona actor Kiccha Sudeep making a special appearance in the film as Bhargav Bakshi. Shriya Saran will be seen as Madhumati, one of the two female leads.
