Akhil Akkineni’s Second film in the direction of Manam fame Vikram K Kumar is progressing at a brisk pace in Hyderabad. Nagarjuna a little while ago announced that he is planning to release The movie on December 22nd as Christmas Special. On the other side, buzz is that the makers are planning to announce the movie title and release the First Look Poster of the film on August 29th as Nagarjuna’s Birthday Special. Veteran director Priyadarshan’s daughter Kalyani is said to be romancing Akhil in the film. Kalyani is making her debut as an actress with this movie and she earlier worked as an assistant director for Vikram’s Okkadunnadu.
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. It is known to our readers that Akhil’s debut movie, Akhil – The Power of Jua ended up as a massive disaster at the box office. The movie which had registered the pre-release business of over 47 Crore could not even collect 20 Crore Share in its full run.
