Biography / Profile:

His clean, honest and rousing approach to acting was actually put on show in the lead role in popular Marathi film, ‘Jogwa‘ directed by noted film maker Rajiv Patil. In this film, he not only gave a controlled and modest but a commanding performance, which earned him the Best Male Actor award at the 56th Indian National Film Awards in 2010.
Besides ‘Jogwa‘, Upendra has appeared in several National award-winning films, like ‘Mukta‘, ‘Bangarwadi‘, ‘Sarkarnama‘, ‘Dhyasparva’, ‘Chandni Bar‘, ‘Page 3‘, ‘Traffic Signal’ besides doing some memorable roles in other Hindi and Marathi cinema.
With a strong background of experimental theatre, Upendra was passionate about acting since his school and college days in Pune and later formed a theatre group ‘Parichay‘ with the help of his friends Sanjay Pawar, Subodh Pande and Abhay Godse, after completing his tenure at Lalit Kala Kendra. Today, he continues to remain in popular demand among not only Marathi film makers but, Bollywood and South Indian film makers too.
