Last year actor Nagarjuna’s younger son Akhil made a disastrous debut in the film named after him. Akhil couldn’t give Akhil the launch his father had hoped for.
After a long period of introspection Akhil is now ready for a second attempt at stardom. Says the star-son, “It’s been a long, long break for me. I needed time to think after Akhil. I’ve decided to do something really interesting and fresh. I am now getting ready to start my second film. Scripting is almost done. We’re gearing up to start post summer, probably in June.”
Ask him about more details and Akhil says, “I am not at liberty to reveal details. But it’s a very fresh urban love story with lots of entertainment. It has lots of scope for me to show my acting prowess.”
Akhil laughs when told that his father feels his first film failed as he was too young to save the world. “I can’t argue with him on that because Akhil did fail. Jokes aside, the film was nowhere close to what I expected it to be. It was poorly executed and ended up being very mediocre in terms of graphics and so on.” Akhil is happy he now has a second chance.
