Akhil’s last release, Hello, was a hit flick and got his career back on track after his debut film, Akhil – Power of Jua, was a debacle at the box office. Hello was directed by Vikram K Kumar and was bankrolled by Akhil’s father, Akkineni Nagarjuna. The film also marked the debut of Kalyani Priyadarshan, daughter of seasoned filmmaker Priyadarshan. The story of Hello was about two people who would get separated in their childhood and the only link between them is a phone number, and Akhil would be in constant search of it.
On the other hand, Venky Atluri had an impressive start to his career as a director in Tollywood with Tholiprema which impressed everyone including audiences and critics. A romantic drama, Tholiprema starred Varun Tej and Raashi Khanna in the lead roles. The actors too were lauded for their performances and Raashi, in particular, was being appreciated for her mature and impressive portrayal of her role.
