Uppena team rejects OTT offers
From the Mega family the new face is Panja Vaisshnav Tej. His debut film is ‘Uppena’ and this was supposed to release in the month of April. As we know Corona virus has forced to shut down theatres, so many films release got postponed. ‘Uppena’ too got postponed but the new release date is not announced yet.
As there is uncertainty on the theatres and multiplexes opening, the producers of ‘Uppena’ were approached by Over The Top (OTT) platforms. They offered a good amount for the film. However the producers took their time and discussed all the probabilities and after hectic deliberations, they rejected OTT platforms offer and decided to go for only theatre release.
‘Uppena’ is produced by director Sukumar under Sukumar Writings and Mythri Movie Makers banners. The film was written and directed by Sukumar protégé Buchi Babu Sana while Devi Sri Prasad composed the music.
The songs of ‘Uppena’ got an amazing response.
