UI Movie OTT Release Date

UI digital rights information is yet to be announced by the makers and movie is expected to hit the screens on 29 December 2023 tentatively. Upendra has created a huge fan base for himself not just in Kannada but also in Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam languages. His unique script selection and choice of characters made him one of the most talented actors in the Kannada film industry. Not just as an actor, he also proved his ability and taste by making movies with very unique points that were never presented on Indian screens. His directorial movie “OM,” starring Shiva Rajkumar in the lead role, was re-released more than 500 times in Karnataka, which is a unique record for any movie in India.

“UI” movie team has opted for new technology in making, and the movie team is keeping all their efforts to make this movie bigger. The movie is shot in different locations across Karnataka, and as per the latest update from the movie team, shooting for this movie has already been wrapped up, and the movie team is now working on the post-production work. Upendra once again proved that he is different from other film makers by releasing a teaser with no visuals and only audio, leaving the teaser for the imagination of the audience. The movie team is working harder to make it possible to release the movie in theaters as soon as possible, but they haven’t confirmed any particular release date, either in theaters or on the OTT platform.

Actress Sunny Leone has earlier appeared in a few special songs in Kannada movies, and now she is playing an important role in this movie.

She earlier appeared in the songs from the movies “DK,” “Luv U Alia,” and “Champion.” She already made her debut in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi and is now making her debut in Kannada and Malayalam movies as an actress at the same time. Hope that the Kannada audience will accept Sunny Leone as an actress as well, and she will grab more opportunities in Kannada films as well.
