Top production house Mythri Movie Makers are on cloud nine after the super success of Rangasthalam. Soon things changed and a series of debacles left them in shock. Sukumar’s protege Buchi Babu impressed them with a script through which Sai Dharam Tej’s brother Vaishnnav Tej is being introduced. This rustic love story is titled Uppena and is inching completion.
Though the film was planned on a small budget, the project was out of their control now. The makers already spent Rs 20 crores on the film and 30 days of the film’s shoot is still left. The makers are now worried about the crept budget. Uppena shoot will be wrapped up by the end of this year and it should get a solo release date to rake decent revenues.
The buyers of Mythri too suffered huge losses with their recent movies and they would not be ready to pay huge amounts for Uppena. Hence, the makers will have to take a huge risk before release for this rustic village-based drama. The film is set in the backdrop of Kakinada and Vaishnnav Tej plays the role of a fisherman in this film.
