Upendra turned down the offer to act with Mahesh Babu for this reason
Mahesh Babu has been in the news for a long time now. From his film Maharshi being posted to his fallout with director Sukumar, he has been in the headlines for a few weeks now.
It is revealed that Mahesh Babu will team up with director Anil Ravipudi for his next film. It is said that Kannada actor Upendra has been roped in to play a crucial role in the film. However, he has turned down the offer due to date clashes.
Currently, Upendra is promoting his film ‘I Love You’ in Telugu states. Addressing the media, he said, “I would take up interesting Telugu Subjects only when I don't have Kannada Films. Don't want to accept everything coming my way and lose the confidence Telugu People have on me. Though I wish to share screen space with Mahesh, Couldn't sign due to the clash of dates. If I get another opportunity, I would surely try to make it happen'.
The casting process is currently underway and the film is expected to hit the theatres in 2020. An official announcement on the same will be out soon.
