Finally, a top heroine has been roped in for Akhil Akkineni. Pooja Hegde has been chosen as the female lead for Akhil. Touted to be a love story with family values, Geetha Arts is producing this movie in the direction of Bommarillu Bhaskar.
Pooja Hegde is very impressed with the script narrated by Bommarillu Bhaskar and has agreed to pair up with Akhil. But Akkineni fans are worrying that she may look quite older to Akhil as she has already paired up with senior stars like Mahesh Babu. A younger heroine would have been a better choice!
Pooja Hegde generally charges Rs 1.5 Cr remuneration for the film but for Akhil’s movie she is demanding more. She has given priority dates to this movie. Pooja Hegde has big projects like Prabhas’s new love story and Allu Arjun’s “Ala Vaikunthapuramlo”.
Akhil has already begun shooting for this film which is being canned in Hyderabad. He plays a simple middle-class boy. The movie has music by Gopi Sundar.
