According to reliable sources, actor Akhil Akkineni is set to begin working on his next film to be directed by none other than Ram Gopal Varma. Presently, RGV is directing Akhil’s father Nagarjuna in a cop thriller in Mumbai.
‘“RGV asked one of his assistants Manju to narrate a story to Akhil, which the actor liked and asked RGV to direct. RGV told Akhil that he is only looking after the project, and that his assistant would be directing it. But Akhil wanted him to direct it. And RGV finally agreed,” says the source, further revealing that RGV has already shot a small teaser with Akhil and the duo seem satisfied with it.
“Once RGV wraps up his film with Nagarjuna, he will move on to Akhil’s film,” added the source.
Moreover, irrespective of the result of their first film together, Akhil has shown a keen interest in working with RGV on other character-strong projects.
