Bengaluru: For close to a month, Sandalwood’s biggest star Upendra, popularly known as Uppi, managed to thrill all the listeners of Radio City 91.1 FM, with his signature wit and charm leaving them longing for more. With the power packed and highly entertaining ‘Whatte Fun Mornings’ co-jocked by RJ Pradeep, Bangalore got to know the real person behind the superstar Upendra, his childhood, his memories, the film world, the city, all drawn from his rich experience. A few lucky listeners even had their dreams come true when they got to speak with the Superstar on-air.
The morning show had entertaining features like Public City, Hello Uppi Sir, that were a resounding success, with listeners eagerly waiting to listen to what Uppi and RJ Pradeep have in store for them. In addition, listeners also got a chance to catch their beloved Uppi on Saturdays, with Rj Kiran, in another surprising avatar.
On his association with Radio City, Upendra said, “I have always believed that Radio has great power to connect with people and when Radio City approached me to do this show, I decided to experience the power of this medium. And I am really happy I took this decision. I got an opportunity to be Uppi, in my real avatar every morning with the people of Bangalore and not play a screen character; to share my thoughts and interact one on one with listeners.
The show has generated an overwhelming response from listeners and fans and I thank all of them for their unconditional love & support.
It has been a memorable experience being a jock with Radio City and have thoroughly enjoyed working with my co jocks Pradeep & Kiran, the show producer Manikantan, Binoy the Programming Director and the rest of the team. I look forward to doing more radio in the future.”
RJ Pradeep, who co-hosted with Real Star Uppi every morning, was also ecstatic with the whole concept and with the way the listeners of Bangalore have responded. Over the last three weeks, the show re-affirmed its claim of being the complete entertainer for Bangalore City. And Radio City promises more such unforgettable experiences for its listeners.
