Akhil Akkineni is known for his good looks and charming smile, and has garnered huge popularity with few films in his career, Hello and Mr. Majnu. If one notices closely, all his films so far showed the romantic side of the actor. Now, for his next with Director Surender Reddy, Akhil will be seen as a full-fledged action star.
Surender Reddy, who is known for making proper action dramas like Dhruva and Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is gearing up once more to show Akhil as the new age action hero. “It’s time, it’s definitely time for the world to see the action hero I see in Akhil. I feel like, after his first film, no one truly explored the potential in him to be that kind of hero. We saw glimpses of it in Hello and Mr. Majnu but nothing full-blown (sic.)”
Surender Reddy stated that when he penned the film’s story, there was only Akhil he could think of. Speaking about the film, the director said, “It’s too early to reveal details about the film but I saw the character I wrote in him and trust me; no one has shown him the way I will on-screen. I want to touch the energetic actor in him, his massy side. And I believe my next film with him, which will be a complete action entertainer like Race Gurram will be the perfect way to do so (sic.)”
Meanwhile, Akhil Akkineni is waiting for the release of his upcoming romantic drama Most Eligible Bachelor with Pooja Hegde. The film is directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar and the release date is scheduled for Pongal 2021.
