Having come to Gandhinagar with dreams of becoming an actor, it was the direction that ultimately called out to Uday Prasanna. The debutant director’s upcoming film Mahishasura is ready for release and will hit screens on January 8. 

Inspired by a true-life incident in Melekote in Doddaballapur, the movie trailer has been a talking point amongst movie buffs. Produced by Melekote Touring Talkies, the movie has been making all the right noises for being a realistic one.


It’s a completely new cast that features in Mahishasura and had Sudarshan, Raj Manju and Bindu in leading roles. For Uday who counts Real Star Upendra and Prem as his inspirations, the film is a dream come true. Having worked as an associate and assistant director to filmmakers like Sanjeev Kulkarni, Hemanth Hegde and Salim Raju, Uday comes with much experience and innovative ideas.

“Mahishasura deals with how the have nots in the society are always oppressed and ill treated by the powerful folks and talks about their suffering,” states Uday.
