Will sensational director help Akhil

Akkineni Akhil’s previous outing, Hello received good reviews but failed to create moolah at the box office. However, Akhil improved a lot after his debut movie and gave a solid performance in Hello.

It’s a known thing that commercial success is very important for an actors career. Akhil is yet to taste a solid hit at the box office and is failing to prove himself as a crowd puller.

Akhil’s new movie has been on cards for a long time as many star directors like Koratala Siva and Vamsi Paidipally entered the frame and left. The latest we hear is that sensational director Puri Jagannadh is finalized to direct Akhil’s next.

Puri is currently working on ‘Mehabooba’ with his son Akash as the male lead. He will be working on Akhil’s project upon completion of Mehabooba.
