Kannada Actor of the Decade
Upendra - 'Raktha Kanneeru' (2003)
'Raktha Kanneeru' was a remake of the Tamil hit of the 50s; MR Radha had directed the original, and had also played the main role to perfection. Upendra's 'RK' is a loyal remake, and the storyline and the period settings remained the same. Upendra's powerful punch-lines were the highlight of this hit movie.
