Uppena aims Christmas release|The Centre is all set to grant permissions for the reopening of theatres from October this year. There are talks that the multiplexes would reopen instantly and the single screens across Telugu states would take time to reopen as there are no films ready for release. Top production house Mythri Movie Makers produced a small film Uppena that introduces Vaishnav Tej, the brother of Sai Dharam Tej to mainstream cinema. The film is made on a budget of Rs 22 crores and is aimed for summer release initially.
With the theatres shut, several films are heading for a digital release. But Uppena makers decided to release the film in theatres and rejected several digital deals. Uppena aims Christmas release. Buchi Babu is the director and Vaishnav Tej, Krithi Shetty are the lead actors. Uppena is a rustic love story set in Kakinada. The music album composed by Devi Sri Prasad is a smashing hit. An official announcement about the release date would be made once the theatres are reopened.
