The young Akkineni lad, Akhil, is gearing up for the release of the second film of his career – HELLO – slated to hit the screens on December 22nd, 2017. After having toured the US along with his cousin Rana Daggubati, Akhil is back in Hyderabad and the makers held a pre-release event for ‘HELLO’ which was a star-studded event. The event was attended by Mega Star Chiranjeevi and his son, Ram Charan, along with many other celebrities. Present at the event were also Akkineni Naga Chaitanya with wife Samantha Akkineni. Kalyani, daughter of filmmaker Priyadarshan and ex-wife Lissy, will be making her debut with ‘HELLO’ in her acting career. The young actress looked pretty at the event dressed in a traditional lehenga. Also spotted was her mother Lissy, who walked into the venue of the event along with Amala Akkineni, wife of Nagarjuna, who is a very dear friend of Lissy and Priyadarshan.
The star of the night, Akhil Akkineni, performed at the event and shook a leg to couple of songs from the music album of ‘HELLO’ which is composed by Anup Rubens. Akhil has also sang a song in the film which he performed at the pre-release event making it much more special. Naga Chaitanya and wife Samantha Akkineni too attended and the couple looked adorable together. The special guests, Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan, spoke about the film ‘HELLO’ and Akkineni Akhil, and were all praise for the young actor. “I’m sure Nagarjuna garu is going to be the most happiest father after ‘HELLO’. Akhil has worked with the best technicians in this film. I cannot wait to watch the film. My dad watched the film today with Nagarjuna garu and during our lunch, the discussion was all about ‘HELLO’. He whole-heartedly enjoyed the film. And I’m sure I will enjoy it too,” Ram Charan said speaking at the event.
Fans present at the venue went into a frenzy when Mega Star Chiranjeevi was on the stage and started speaking. “When Nagarjuna invited me to this event, I decided I will come since I feel this is a family event. Akhil’s family I’m sure is happy and excited about the film, and I’m more excited than them since I share a warm relationship with this family. I feel there is a great connection between the word ‘HELLO’ and this Akkineni family. ANR garu had a song in one of his films called ‘Hello Hello O Ammayi’ and then Nagarjuna and Amala too had a song called ‘Hello guru prema kosame’ in one of their films. And now, ‘HELLO’ as the title for Akhil’s film,” said Chiranjeevi speaking at the event.
