Akhil 3a

Akhil Akkineni made his film debut in 2015 with the film Akhil and later starred in Hello in 2016. Both the films haven’t been able to help the new actor on the block gain much as far as acting career is concerned. However, this third project might change it all since it is being helmed by Venky Atluri who’s Tholi Prema was loved by most audience and critics. Will his third film be an out and out romantic film or be an action thriller or have elements of both these genres? Nothing much is known as yet but we are sure that we will learn more about Akhil Akkineni’s third film next month before it starts rolling. Stay tuned.
