British Indian model-turned-actor Upen Patel has been approached by AR Murugadoss for a South Indian film.
Upen Patel is riding high on the success of his debut Tamil movie, Shankar’s I”, that went on to become a huge box office hit thereby making Rs 200 crores worldwide.
Following the movie’s success and Upen’s immense popularity down south, we have learnt that another successful director from South has been trying to rope in the suave actor for his next South movie.
With ‘I’ having done phenomenally well at the box office, it shows how 2015 indeed began on a good note for Upen, who’s been flooded with good acting offers from Bollywood and Tollywood.
Sources suggest that Upen and South filmmaker Murugadoss met recently to discuss the possibilities of doing a South movie together.
A source informs, “Murugadoss is quite keen to rope in Patel for his next South project. The director who shares a close bond with Upen has already discussed the script with the actor who has also given his consent in principle. After all, it was Murugadoss, the path breaking director.”
