Upendra and Bhavana starrer "Topiwala' directed by youngster R.J.Sreeni and produced by Kanakapura Sreenivas and K.P.Srikanth has completed its shoot and now the post production work is on. Addressing the first press meet of the film which was attended by the film's lead actor Upendra, the film's producer K.P.Srikanth assured that Topiwala will be a film that the Sandalwood may be proud off. "I am sure it would stand competition to many Bollywood films in the way it has been conceived and projected.
Kanakapura Sreenivas said that a younger team has worked for the film which has ensured fresh thoughts in presentation. I had earlier produced Upendra's film "Onkaara' which earuned over Rs. 1 crore of share in the first week in BKT area alone' remembered Srinivas.
R.J. Srini said that the story and screenplay has been done by Upendra which is a major strength of the film. "I have directed the film and written dialogues for the film. My work became much easier because of the powerful script written by Upendra sir' said Srini.
Upendra said that earlier he had watched Srini's film "Kailawsome' which had really appealed him. Then he had promised Srini that he would do one film if proper script is given. Later they started coming to me regularly. Then I had a story line which I discussed with Srini. The young director was more than willing to base his first film on the story. Then I started working on the script for which even Srini gave some suggestions. Later when we thought of getting a good producer for the film we zeroed on Kanakapura sreenivas and K.P.Srikanth who make films of quality and huge spend. That is how the film had started' said Upendra said.
'The film's story is based on contemporary incidents in our life. Politics is even part of the events that we would showcase in the film. In a way the film will be a package of incidents that could be connected to our lives. The film has sarcasm, comedy and a little bit of thrills also' said Upendra.
Srini said that one song and a few sequences of the film have been shot in Switzerland for the film. One song has to be yet picturised on Upendra. Hari Krishna is the music director.
