You cannot repeat the mistake, Akhil

Akkineni Akhil is yet to score a solid hit at the box office as his first movie, Akhil-The power of Juah was a massive dud and his second movie, Hello received critical acclaim but was a flop when it came to box office numbers. The young actor is in dire need of a blockbuster to establish himself as a worthy hero in the industry.

Nagarjuna, who oversees Akhil’s film career brought in Venky Atluri to direct Akhil’s next movie. Venky scored good marks with his first movie, Tholiprema and showcased his sensible directional skills. The buzz is that he prepared a solid script that perfectly suits Akhil’s image.

Th interesting part is that the makers are planning to release this romantic drama during the Dusserah season. This makes it clear that the movie unit is trying to cash in on the holiday season to reap decent benefits at the box office. However, NTR-Trivikram project is also lined up for release this Dusserah. Trivikram is working his heart out to set things right and Tarak’s dedication levels are damn too high. Titled Aravinda Sametha, this movie has already raked up great expectations.

Akhil previously had to taste a failure with Hello as he clashed with Nani’s MCA, which scored well despite a weaker word of mouth when compared to Hello. It would be nothing less to a disaster if Akhil wishes to lock horns against NTR, say trade pundits. We should wait and watch if the makers of Akhil3 will take a highly risky decision.
