During a recent press meet for ‘Upendra Mathe Ba’, the ‘Real Star’ addressed these doubts and said that he has left his fate in the hands of the public. He went on to add that if the public wants, he will act in films again.
“I want to do something for the citizens and therefore I came into politics, but it looks like I will need time to involve myself with it completely. I have never said that I will leave cinema. I just needed a gap, to set right the system. Moreover, I don’t make that decision. Like the lines ‘Haalaladaru haaku, neeralaadaru haaku’ (Put me in milk or in water) it depends on the general sentiment. I will always be where the general public want me, the decision is in their hands. If they want me to, I will come back and act,” said Uppi.
On a related note, Upendra Mathe Ba is a remake of ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’ and will see Upendra essay the role played by Nagarjuna in the original. Besides Uppi, it also features Shruthi Hariharan and Prerna in the lead.
