Its an obvious thing for many of friends that Iam a fan of Upendra, the kannada superstar/real star.  I had been such a mad fan while at college, that I used to enact/direct Uppi’s mimicry based roles on stage, watch Uppi’s movies multiple times etc. I have had a glimpse of the actor many times in heavy rush from far off. I have been always contented with it, because he is a role model for me, for my THINKING and WRITING skills.

On May25th 2009, I got a call from Kiran Sreedhar, RJ, Radio City 91.1FM. He is my very good friend and we have done a lot of recordings together before. This call was also for a recording for RadioCity, but it was something special. Kiran told me that we have Upendra in the Studio and we have to record something special. So I directed a sequence for him and myself, wherein Upendra calls me and tells that its Upendra speaking. So I keep saying that its some prank call on me and you are not Upendra.. The sequence takes a lot of funny dialogues and twists and finally after a minute, kiran interferes and says, it was not a prank call, it was really Upendra who called me up and I had become a bakra again by not believing him! Upendra was very happy about how it came out.

Soon after this, I messaged Kiran and thanked him for making me speak to my superstar. He asked me to come over the RadioCity so that we all can meet. I was very much excited, Rushed to the Studio in just 5 mins!

The moment Uppi came out of the Studios, the moment I saw him, the feeling was exactly similar to a person who would have done a penance for 9 years for God, and finally would have got darshan at the end of 9 years. I shook hands with him and told him, its me who spoke to him during the recording on phone. He was very happy to see me and he said, “ayyo allello idri, ille banbiTTideera eega!”. Kiran explained how i came so fast to the studio.

Upendra exclaimed. “Neevu bahala chennagi mathaaDtheera. Kiran kooDa heLthidda”. I was again happy to hear this. We all (Kiran , Uppi, Me, Rj Pradeepa etc ) went to a NO MAN’s LAND in the same building. It was photo session time. Kiran took my photos in RJ Pradeepa’s camera. Soon after this, we all had a cup of coffee together, chatting about the problems in the multiplexes, the negatives of kannada producers and other stuff.

Now Upendra was getting late and he had to leave. We went upto the parking lot to bid a bye to him. He had come in his black AUDI car to the studio. Best part was, he had no driver. Hee Hee. (ofcourse, why do you have to give the costliest car to a driver to drive!?)

It was a fantastic experience for me to meet Upendra. Here is the AUDIO CLIP of the DISCUSSION we had.
