“Upendra is in love with his film set and always has a good time,” says Shriya Saran in an IMDb exclusive video!
IMDb Original series ‘Ask Each Other Anything’ brings fans closer to their favorite celebrities as they reveal candid details about their lives, share unfiltered opinions and exclusive BTS details from their projects! Ahead of the release of the Kannada movie Kabzaa, Upendra and Shriya Saran came together to share the experience of shooting the film and their adorable first impressions of each other.
Talking about the first time she shared screen space with Upendra, Shriya said, “The first time I met him we were shooting for the song NamaamiNamaami. It’s beautifully choreographed by Chinni sir. The crew mentioned that Upendra sir is coming on set and everyone around was talking about him. Suddenly he walked in while I was learning my dance steps. I turned back and saw him in his regal outfit as he is dressed as a king in the song. He was smiling even though everyone around him was very quiet and serious. He walked in with a big smile and was full of laughter. He is a superstar but doesn’t act like one. He is simply in love with his film set and is having a good time. For him it’s really hard to accept appreciation but it’s very easy for him to appreciate and praise others, and that speaks volumes about him.”
As if on cue, Upendra started praising Shriya. “When I heard that you are doing this movie, I thought wow! Just a dream come true. I’d approached you for two-three movies in the past, but you were so busy, acting in so many Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Tamil movies,” he said.
