It may sound a little absurd but it is certainly true.
Young Upen Patel now has the lucky mascot tag attached to him as he has the unique distinction of being the only lead hero who has proved to be lucky for two screen pairs that had been written off after their debut effort.
Still thinking? Well let us clarify that for you.
Remember FIDA, the film that brought together Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. The film was a box office failure and there were question marks over the future of the young ones coming together in the subsequent films. 36 CHINA TOWN arrived in 2006 and turned out to be a good success. The man who had an important role to play in the film? Upen Patel.
Something similar happened in case of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif too. Their HUMKO DEEWANA KAR GAYE was a film that threatened to harm the looking-good jodi of the two stars. But now cynics can look elsewhere as the two have come up with a successful NAMASTE LONDON. The usual suspect who was spotted in the film? Upen Patel!
After giving Shahid, Kareena, Akshay and Katrina plenty of reasons to smile about, the young lad certainly deserves to have things working in his favor with
SHAKALAKA BOOM BOOM as this is the first time in his blooming career that he has been roped in as a lead hero.
Is it now Bobby Deol's turn to turn lucky for Upen?
