Not RGV, But His Assistant to Direct Akhil?


Names of several directors including Ram Gopal Varma and his protege, Puri Jagannath have made rounds as the potential options to direct Akhil Akkineni’s third film. Here is the exclusive info about the script that is currently being cooked inside Annapurna Studios.

It is heard that not RGV but his Assistant, not Puri Jagannath either, has impressed Akhil and Nagarjuna with a powerful story line. The newcomer got the nod of Akkineni heroes and is currently developing the script with the help of a team of writers in Annapurna Studios.

Said to be a mass entertainer, the project can become #Akhil3 if both Nagarjuna and Akhil get convinced with the final draft. Since the first two films of Akhil didn’t work as expected, utmost care is being taken for his third film. Time doesn’t seem to be a constraint for the Akkineni family as Nag is hell bent on establishing Akhil as a mass hero.

Meanwhile, Akhil worked with RGV for a short film, which is yet to be released.
