Uppena is an upcoming Telugu film starring Panja Vaisshnav Tej and Krithi Shetty in the lead roles. Panja Vaisshnav Tej, who will make his Tollywood debut with Uppena, is the newest member from Megastar Chiranjeevi’s family to do so and is Sai Dharam Tej’s brother. Krithi Shetty is making her debut as a lead actress in a Telugu movie and earlier worked in the Kannada and Tamil film industries.
Uppena made waves when it was announced Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi will play the role of the antagonist in Uppena. Sethupathi earlier made his debut in the Telugu film industry by playing a supporting role in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, which starred Megastar Chiranjeevi.
Uppena is directed by Buchi Babu Sana, who was director Sukumar’s assistant. The film is produced jointly by Mythri Movie Makers and Sukumar Writings. Devi Sri Prasad will score the music for Uppena. The launch event for Uppena was a grand affair as Chiranjeevi, Naga Babu, Allu Arjun and Sai Dharam Tej made their presence at the event.
The first look of Uppena was released earlier and showed Panja Vaisshnav Tej at a beach, screaming with his arms outstretched. The second poster shows the mass look of Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi and he looks every bit menacing as a gangster. The filmmakers definitely upped the hype of the movie with this poster. Vijay Sethupathi’s character in Uppena is named Rayanam.
