Akhil Akkineni had a disastrous start to his career last year with Akhil – The Power of Jua and early into the new year, he had a personal tragedy with a cancelled marriage. But then, the actor is keeping all that aside and is getting back to work. His second film with Manam fame Vikram K Kumar will finally have its launch on April 3rd and the regular shooting will follow. The makers are currently erecting a huge set in Annapurna Studios in which a major portion of the film will be canned.
Vikram is almost done with the script work for this prestigious project. AR Rahman who scored music for Vikram’s Manam and 24 will also be composing music for this film. Reports are emerging that Tabu will play a crucial role in the movie. Akhil has started hitting the gym for his role in the movie and is doing some intense workouts. Akhil – The Power of Jua crashing all the hopes of Akkineni fans ended up as a huge disaster. It carried huge hype before the release and made a pre-release business of some 47 Crore. Finally, it could not even manage to collect 20 Crore Share which can be termed as a massive shame. Vikram is currently in Mumbai to convince a happening Bollywood heroine to romance Akhil.
Nagarjuna himself will be producing the movie on his Annapurna Studios Banner. Vikram after Manam directed Suriya in a science fiction film, 24 which ended up as a big failure even though it did decently well in Telugu.This new project is almost like a make or break project for Akhil as if the movie ends up as a failure, people will start writing him off. Vikram should also bag a hit and prove that he is not a one film wonder.
