Akhil Akkineni, younger son of Nagarjuna Akkineni, made his debut with a film titled ‘Akhil’ in 2015 which was directed by VV Vinayak. The film did not fare as the makers would have expected it to and bombed at the box office. Akhil is now working on his second film which is being directed by acclaimed filmmaker Vikram K Kumar. The film is being produced by Nagarjuna himself under their home banner Annapurna Productions. Said to be an action-thriller, the shooting of the film is currently in progress in and around Hyderabad.
And now according to latest reports, the production house is considering a very unique title for the film and it is also being said that the title has been registered. The title is said to ‘Rangula Raatnam’ which is in consideration for Akhil’s second film which is in the making. The shooting of this film commenced a month ago in Hyderabad with few action sequences shot in and around the capital city.
Reports were doing rounds that yesteryear top actress Sridevi’s younger 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.
