Besides, director Venky Atluri, who grabbed all the limelight after the success of Tholi Prema, will helm Akkineni Akhil’s third film. Reportedly, Nidhhi Agerwal will be playing the leading lady of the film. Reportedly, the makers of the film wanted some fresh face opposite Akhil and so they ended up locking Nidhhi for the lead role. Nidhhi’s onscreen chemistry with Akhil is something each one is looking forward to catch on the big screen.
