Akkineni Akhil has produced three flops in a row. ‘Akhil’, ‘Hello’ and ‘Mr. Majnu’ all created losses for the distributors. Of this, ‘Hello’ is the only respectable movie somewhat (if at all you want to say that). He is currently shooting for his fourth movie. Luckily for him, ‘Maharshi’ actress Pooja Hegde has said OK.
This fourth film is being directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar whose career is also in the doldrums. Hence the production house has roped in top actress Pooja Hegde who has been consistently delivering hits. The shoot is underway and Pooja Hegde will join Akhil shortly. Her name has officially been announced.
On the other hand, Akhil is in confusion as to how to develop his career. He is doing too many things at a time. Even before he has his first box-office hit, Akhil is spreading himself thin by listening to too many stories. He has heard a script from ‘AWE’ and ‘Kalki’ director Prasanth Varma. It is a thriller, which Akhil has liked.
It is also learned that ‘Geetha Govindam’ director Parusuram is sought after by Akkineni Nagarjuna, who wants to bankroll a project with him for his son. However, Parusuram is keen on working with Mahesh Babu and has been making rounds around the ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ star. He is not enthused to work with Akhil.
By approaching too many directors, Akhil is clearly showing that he is in desperation to put his career on right. All in all, Akhil is at a crossroads right now.
