According to recent reports, Akkineni Nagarjuna is leaving no stone unturned to ensure his younger son Akhil Akkineni’s second film brings him success. The actor/producer has convinced his Manam director Vikram K Kumar to make a film with Akhil and the film has already started rolling a month ago. A few action episodes for the film were shot at a Metro station in Hyderabad and Akhil seems to be pretty excited about the film.
The latest buzz has it that Bollywood actress Tabu has been roped in to play his mother in this untitled film which is to be produced by Nagarjuna. Nagarjuna and Tabu have shared a great rapport and their alleged relationship has always created some buzz in the industry circles and amongst his fans.
“Tabu was approached for the project a few months ago. After going through the script, she immediately gave her nod. Other cast members will be locked by this weekend. One can expect an official announcement within a fortnight. The film will roll next month with a 30-day schedule in Hyderabad,” a source was quoted in a leading tabloid.
It took many years for the smoke to settle down regarding the rumours of their relationship, and this might start some new speculations about Nagarjuna and Tabu. Nagarjuna had once said in an interview that Tabu has always been a close family friend and there is nothing to hide about her. Nag also had said that they have been great pals since they were in the 20s and started out in films.
