Actor Upendra Rao has recently become a trending topic of discussion after it was reported that he was hospitalised due to breathing difficulties. Upendra, who has starred in numerous action-packed films, is a celebrated face in the Kannada film industry. Therefore, evidently, upon hearing the news of his health condition, Upendra’s fans took to social media to express their concerns about his health.
However, the Kannada star recently dismissed all the rumours surrounding his ailment. In a Facebook live session, the Raktha Kanneeru actor clarified that he is fit and healthy, urging his fans to not believe or spread any rumours.
According to the entertainment portal FilmiBeat, many Kannada news outlets reported that Upendra was facing breathing problems while shooting for his upcoming film UI.

He also assured fans that there was nothing major to worry about. The live video also captured the cast and crew of UI. “At present, we are continuing the shooting,” confirmed Upendra in the Facebook live session.
