Kannada Star Upendra is all set to act and direct his 50th movie titled Adhira. The movie is in its Pre Production Stages and will go on floors this April. This is the first time the director has picked up a script written by someone else and since it is Upendra’s 50th film, the project needed his involvement. Another interesting news is Adhira will feature two heroines. The team are planning to bring in established heroines for the movie, and for this, they have allocated a good budget and will zero-in on the names after consulting with Upendra. The process of finalising the artists will be done after Pongal.
Adhira, which means ‘lights’, is touted to be a period-drama about incarnation, which will have historical, commercial and suspense elements. Upendra is well known to Telugu audiences for his cult movies such as A, Omkaram, Shhh and Upendra etc.
Apart from playing the main lead, Upendra had also directed those films which became successful both in Kannada and Telugu. The latest updates reveal that Adhira will be released in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, apart from Kannada. The last Kannada movie that was a released as a Multilingual was Yash's KGF that is breaking records at the box office.
