Supreme hero Sai Tej's brother and Megastar Chiranjeevi's nephew Vaishnav Tej is making his debut to Tollywood as a hero with Uppena. Earlier, the film was supposed to release on April 2.
However, the film's release was deferred inevitably owing to the outbreak of Coronavirus. And now, team Uppena is contemplating to release the film on May 7. Since many other films' release dates were also postponed and the makers of those films have determined to get their films release in April itself, Uppena makers have to opt for prolonged postponement of their film.
Debutant Kriti Shetty played Vaishnav's romantic interest in the film while Vijay Sethupathy, who played antagonist, will appear as her father. Rockstar Devi Sri Prasad composed music. The film was directed by Sana Buchibabu, a protege of Sukumar. Mythri Movie Makers is the production house.
