Akhil Akkineni, who’s debut in Tollywood did have a huge impact as expected, is now shooting for his next film which is being directed by Vikram K Kumar. Produced by Akhil’s father, Akkineni Nagarjuna under the banner Annapurna Productions, the film is currently being shot in and around Hyderabad which will also mark the debut of Kalyani, daughter of Malayalam filmmaker Priyadarshan. Nagarjuna kept fans guessing about the title by releasing hit songs from his and Naga Chaitanya’s films. And now, they have confirmed the title of the film as ‘Hello’.
Directed by Vikram K Kumar, ‘Hello’ is said to be a romantic entertainer and will have Akhil in a newer look. The shooting of this film commenced a month ago in Hyderabad with few action sequences shot in and around the capital city. Earlier, reports were doing rounds that a different title was being considered for this Akhil’s second film which now has been titled ‘Hello’.
Reports were doing rounds that yesteryear top actress Sridevi’s daughter, Khushi Kapoor might be making her debut in acting with Akhil’s second film. However, it was later confirmed that Malayalam filmmaker Priyadarshan’s daughter, Kalyani, has been finalised as the lead actress for the film. If this happens, this will Kalyani’s first film and mark her debut in acting. With his first film not doing great, as he may have expected it to do, Akhil has his hopes pinned on his second film and will look to make it big in Tollywood.
