Akhil is back to square one after a misfiring debut in 2015. The Akkineni handsome lad is going to be relaunched with his second film which is being produced by his home banner Annapurna Studios. Vikram Kumar, who churned out good hits like Manam and Ishq, is calling shots for this film which is tipped to be an action romance.
While it was nearly two months since the shoot got underway, the makers are yet to find a female lead for Akhil. A couple of happening beauties were rumoured to be a part of the project, but no formal announcement has been made so far. It is learnt that Vikram Kumar is still on the lookout for the heroine who can fit the bill perfectly.
Sources say that the makers have approached a couple of Bollywood starlets too, but the efforts were not fruitful. It remains to be seen which heroine will make the cut. Currently scenes featuring Akhil and other artists are being wrapped up. Jinnu and Ekkada Ekkada Vundho Taraka are the titles in consideration for the film.
