Akhil to Romance Nani's Heroine


There has been a lot of delay in announcing Akhil’s second film and the domination of news about Akhil’s second film director for more than a year, Akkineni Nagarjuna has recently announced that Annapurna Studios will roll out Akhil’s next with Manam fame Vikram Kumar. Well if the new batch of reports are anything to go by, the yet-to-be titled film has found a leading lady in the form on Niveda Thomas.

A Film Nagar source explains us that Thomas’s inclusion in the cast has already been finalized and an official announcement is not very far. Earlier, a gossip popped up that Kanche fame Pragya Jaiswal would to romance Akhil in the film, but it turned out to be false. Director Vikram Kumar, who recently entered into wedlock with Srinidhi Venkatesh, is reportedly fixing things to get this romantic entertainer on to floors soon.

Niveda, who shot to fame with many awards including Kerala State award, made her Tollywood debut alongside natural star Nani in Gentleman (2016).  The bubbly actress built-in a good fan base in Telugu with a terrific debut performance in the film.

Other cast and crew details are still vague and movie is expected to begin its production by early November. Technically, this project is being considered as Akhil’s ‘re-launch’, after a debacle start with VV Vinayak. And we guess Akhil-Nivetha would make a great pair on screen.
