The Pre-Release Trailer of 'I Love You', starring Sandalwood superstar Upendra, was released at a grand event held in Bengaluru on Monday. Upendra and the film's cast and crew attended the event, while 'Kichcha' Sudeep was there as the chief guest. Ex Minister HM Revanna (Karnataka), GT Devegowdru (Education Minister of Karnataka), Kavali's YSRCP MLA Pratap Reddy, Ramachandre Gowdru (Specialist Hospitals), Mohan Kumar (Mohan Movies), Bahar Films Basha, and Lakshmi Prasad (Associate Editor) graced the occasion as guests.
The film's first trailer has garnered 10 million views and trended on social media as well. The film, touted to be Upendra's 'Star Is Back' movie, will be released in 1000 screens on June 14 (worldwide). The makers described the movie as a pure family entertainer.
Speaking on the occasion, director R Chandru described Upendra as a Chakravarthy of fans. "He is a superstar who has taken Sandalwood's glory to all other film industries. I am glad that Abhinaya Chakravarthy Sudeep sir, too, is here today. I admire him for his simplicity. He is such a gentleman who is so down-to-earth. Coming to 'I Love You', this has been made to be another 'Geethanjali'. Upendra sir is fabulous in the role. Heroine Rachita has done an erotic episode for the first time in her career. When she heard the script, she knew that she needs to get bold because only then would the script be justified. I thank GT Devegowda sir (a Minister in the Karnataka government) and others for being here. Devegowda sir takes care of me like I am his son. We are planning to release 'I Love You' on June 14. We are soon going to hold an audio event for the Telugu version in Vizag on the beach side."
