Hyderabad, Aug 26: Tollywood Young Hero Akhil Akkineni has delivered two back to back disasters with his first two films.
With Naga Chaitanya proving to be not effective at the box office, Akkineni fans have pinned high hopes on Akhil to take the legacy of ANR and Nagarjuna forward. But then, the young actor is disappointing them big time.
Akkineni fans are of the opinion that Akhil choosing to work with young directors is the reason for the failures.
Much to the disappointment, Akhil chose one film old Venky Atluri for his third film and there are reports that he has okayed the script of Satya Prabhas who bagged a big hit with Malupu for his fourth film. This film with Akhil will be made as a bilingual in Telugu and Hindi.
The Telugu version will be produced by Nagarjuna himself while Popular Bollywood Filmmaker Karan Johar will be bankrolling the Hindi Version. Even though the Bollywood debut of Akhil is exciting, Akkineni fans are disappointed that he is going to work with another relatively new director.
On the other side, Akhil's Third film is tentatively titled as Mr. Manju and the First Look Poster of the film will be unveiled on the 29th of this month as Nagarjuna's Birthday Special.
