Kannada star Upendra has rejected Mahesh Babu and Anil Ravipudi’s upcoming project. It is said that producer Anil Sunkara and his team met Upendra and narrated him the story and asked him to play the role of villain in Mahesh Babu starrer but he reportedly didn't show interest to do this film. Upendra has rejected the film so Anil Ravipudi is planning to approach a senior Tamil star. Recently Fidaa fame Sai Pallavi rejected Mahesh Babu and now Upendra has denied playing the villain.
The sources say that Upendra wants to put his acting career on hold to focus on the politics and is preparing to contest in elections as part of Prajaakeeya party. Even his upcoming film I Love You has been also delayed because the actor is busy in election activities. Currently, Mahesh Babu is busy in Maharshi, which is on the verge of completion.
