Upapatī (उपपती) refers to a “hero married to a woman and also attracting the attention of another woman” and represents one of the three kinds of “heroes” (nāyaka) in a dramatic representation, according to the Abhinaya-sara-samputa, as used within the classical tradition of Indian dance and performance, also known as Bharatanatyam.—In the depiction of any mood or sentiment, a dance performance or a dramatic representation takes the medium of the hero (nāyaka) and the heroine (nāyikas). The nāyakas (heroes) are classified into three types [viz., Upapatī] depending on their relationship with the nāyikas (heroines).Source: Shodhganga: The significance of the mūla-beras (natya)
