Kannada superstar Upendra celebrated his 45th birthday with Smile Foundation kids and dignitaries from Sandalwood Industry at Bangalore Palace Grounds, Gayatri Vihar in Bangalore.
Upendra and his wife, Priyanka announced their philanthropic venture, Uppi Foundation, during the occasion. Explaining the thought behind the initiative, Priyanka said, “Over the years, Upendra has been offered opportunities to get into politics, but his idea of working for society is different. We have done our bit for charitable organizations and thought why not have our own trust, to do the kind of work we want to do; which is primarily taking care of the girl child and ensuring that they get basic things like education and sanitation.”
The kids from Smile Foundation extended their best wishes to Upendra and danced with him after the cake cutting ceremony along with the actor’s family and friends. The star studded event was attended by eminent personalities from the world of cinema, corporate and media.
