Star kid Akkineni Akhil made his debut in 2015. Even though ‘Akhil’ tanked heavily at the box office, Akhil’s impressive dance moves, energetic performance, and charming screen presence gave an impression that a star hero was in the making.
Unfortunately, his career is in the doldrums because he failed to score a single commercial hit in these 8 years. Despite trying different genres with big-ticket directors, Akhil couldn’t score a convincing box office hit with his five films so far.
Akhil’s recent outing Agent ended as the biggest debacle of his career and further demoralized him. Even after six months, there is still no clarity on when will his next project start rolling.
There have been reliable reports that top production house UV Creations will bankroll a big-budget entertainer with Akhil. It is heard that the script work of this film is currently in full swing and the regular shooting is expected to commence in February next year. Anil Kumar, an associate in UV who worked on numerous films, will make his directional debut.
Meanwhile, an interesting piece of news is making rounds in the film Nagar. As per these sources, star director SS Rajamouli is likely to associate with UV Creations for this film. He will oversee the script work by giving valuable inputs and suggestions.
Rajamouli will involve thoroughly in the making of the film and also look after the post-production phase till the final cut is ready.
Rajamouli’s presence will boost the prospects of the project given his track record and craze among audiences. His association will give him a big opportunity for Akhil to revive his career by scoring a blockbuster.
