Speaking on the occasion Lakshmi Manchu said, “It was the legend NTR who launched Sri Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures in 1982. Now we are starting our new banner Manchu’s Entertainment with Bala Krishna as one of the heroes. t is so gracious of my brother Bala Krishna for doing this movie. I made my debut as producer last year with Jhummandi Naadam. It was a great experience. I have started a new company called Manchu Entertainment with my talk show ‘Prematho Mee Lakshmi’. ULUP is a dream project for Manoj and this project has been on anvil for the past 3 years. Manoj Manchu started doing films with novelty since Nenu Meeku Telusa? This film will also offer variety and commercial fulfilment. We are constructing a big set in Manikonda now.”
Bala Krishna said, “I am very close to the Manchu family. I have my own image as a mass hero, but I always strive to do variety and good roles. UKUP will satisfy me both as an actor and as an entertainer. Lakshmi returned to India after working in Hollywood. She made a name for herself as an actor and talk show host now here. I am proud of her. Sekhar Raja came up with a good story. UKUP is a novel title and this film will be narrated in a new style.”
Manoj Manchu expressed his happiness over Bala Krishna acting in this movie and said that this film is going to be a result of a team work.
