After Sunil, it is the turn of Uday Kiran to spring a surprise by building a six pack abs body. In what may be called a conscious image transformation of sorts, the chocolate boy, who might be the only hero who has done the least number of fighting scenes in his decade-old career, will be seen in an action-oriented film. The untitled film will be directed by his Sreeram director, VN Aditya. (The director debuted with a hit in the form of Manasantha Nuvve, but later on went into a hibernation, only to be given a chance by MS Raju in the form of Aata, which too came a cropper).
Interestingly, the movie is touted as a sequel to Sreeram, which was itself an average caper. The movie did have its share of good moments and the strength of the story, but it will be interesting to see how it will be carried forward.
Uday was one of the reigning stars when Sreeram happened. Cut to the present, he is in a lurch. While a film of his is languishing in the studios, even the female fans have stopped going to theatres to watch him. How far the six-packs formula can attract the eyeballs is to be seen.
It is learnt that Uday has started working on Project Six. The film is set to go on the floors in mid-2012.
