Bengaluru: Real Star Upendra has turned down an offer from Tollywood, as he is all set to contest in the Lok Sabha polls through his party 'Prajakeeya.' The project in which he was offered a role is a most expected movie in the Telugu film industry which has Superstar Mahesh Babu in the lead role.
Upendra, who is currently busy with his new political party, has taken a break from his film schedules. He has postponed the shooting schedules of his own films and has also turned down other offers.
The makers of the Mahesh Babu starrer film, which is directed by Anil Ravipudi, had approached Upendra to play the role of the main antagonist. However, the actor turned down the offer stating that he will not be signing any new projects until the Lok Sabha elections are over.
Sai Pallavi was also approached by the film makers to play the female lead in the film, but she turned down the offer as the film is hero-oriented and there is no much scope for the actress. Now the film team is in talks with Rashmi Mandanna for the role.
