If you want to travel to Bangalore, get down at Solapur and take Solapur-YPR superfast, you will reach earlier than Udyan exp. BIG Cinemas is 1.7 kms from Solapur Railway Station, just in case you want to spend couple of hours in between.

But, "from' station is not mentioned, though 'xfer' station Sholapur is mntioned ...
So the idea can further be elaborated and explained in details...

Always prefer 11013/11014 Kurla Express over Udyan express for travelling to Mumbai/Pune from Bengaluru and vice versa because of the following reasons
1) Food - Pantry Car is available on this train so no problem for food even though pantry car is purely vegetarian it is certainly better than the food the hawkers/unofficial vendors that serve inedible food on the Udyan express.Even no problem for drinking water on this train
2)Cleanliness - OBHS is available on board.Cleaning is top class in AC compartments.But average in SL compartments but definitely better than Udyan Express.

3)Coaches - Coaches are pretty new on this train where as in Udyan it is of 1990's make and all the cushion have come out in 2A coaches of Udyan express.
4)Ticket Availability - GN tickets are easily available in this train (except during summer season,Ganesh Chaturthi,Pongal etc.) but Bengaluru to Mumbai/Pune falls under PQ which is very difficult to clear.So for GN quota tickets book tickets from Salem(only ₹55 extra to the fare and that to for confirmed berths)(For both Pune/Mumbai to SBC and I vice versa)and chose boarding point as Bengaluru City/Bengaluru Cantt. and book to any station in Mumbai.(Salem to Pune falls under PQ so book upto Kalyan and get down at Pune.)
5) Charging points - Charging points available in each bay.
6)Punctuality- The only problem of this train is punctuality this train is punctual in reaching Coimbatore but however in reaching Bengaluru it can be almost 2.5 to almost 9hrs late.It is a very rare case this train arriving Bengaluru on time.

Better than 11013 is chalukya( 11005/11022). Its empty as well and you get decent food on the way at UBL, ASK, etc. It arrives ypr before time on most days. Udyan is the last option, its too slow. Return direction 11014 is no doubt the best connection! But book in 11014 only after checking whether 11013 is on time since the same rake returns in 2 hours from CBE. 11013 arrives mostly after 1-2 hours late at SBC due to huge slack after SBC and also single line YNK-DMM section.

Who said chalukya is an empty train it is one of the most demanded trains from Bengaluru towards Mumbai pantry car also available so no need to even get down and in many cases RAC itself doesn't get cleared chalukya is not a daily train.So Kurla is I feel a better option since GNWL gets easily cleared

Its generally empties at BGM and new passengers get in, i frequently travel in this train and always get tickets comfortably. In return till UBL also seats are more or less available. And regarding food in chalukya without pantry also, it stops for a long time in UBL and ASK for lunch and snacks as well as other stations for breakfast. Kurla is also an excellent train sir but it reaches very late at SBC. I have also travelled frequently in kurla to CBE, but prefer chalukya for bangalore. Also I stay near YPR so added bonus :)
And even in chalukya it runs 6 days a week, for PDY book upto VM for GNWL and for TEN upto MDU, its costlier,
but generally AC tickets are available in this train.

For the 20th time, reminding myself that this train doesn't have pantry. Carry your own lunch. Also, railways might never ever learn to make tea, so carry your own thermos full of tea too.

Now e.catering is not helpful ?
many caterers book and supply food as per your requirements at your seat/berth... travelkhana, khanagadi, railrestro etc.
