Still the suspense prevails in Akhil’s second film
Akkineni Akhil has to be praised for his patience over selecting script for his second movie. He is been listening to a number of scripts from many directors.
All the directors who worked for Nag and scored a hit have been rumored to work with Akhil for his second project. Either it may be Vikram Kumar of ‘Manam’ or Hanu Raghavapudi of ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’ or Vamsi Paidipally of ‘Oopiri’, all the three directors are said to team up with Akhil but none has finalized. After the disaster of his first movie, King Nag is not letting Akhil take decisions on his own. One has to take Nag’s judgment in consideration as Nag had warned before selecting the script of the movie ‘Akhil’ as it doesn’t match the image of his son. However, he gave freedom for him to hear scripts from anyone as the final nod should be given by Nag himself.
Recently, they almost confirmed roping Vamsi for Akhil but Vamsi turned down as he doesn’t like remaking ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. Then Nag asked Vamsi to prepare a fresh script. And now Vamsi has gone to USA and Nag may change him for any other director if he likes the script.
