The list of directors considered to helm Akhil Akkineni’s second project looks to be unending.
After Vamsi Paidipally had opted out, Hanu Raghavapudi was heard to have almost finalized. Just when everyone thought that the film would finally take off, the project was dropped. Now, the name of Vikram Kumar is being heard.
After directing Nithin in his career-reviving hit film ‘Ishq’, Vikram Kumar delivered a classic titled ‘Manam’ with Akkineni family. Then, Nagarjuna had asked Vikram to prepare a story for Akhil but due to the prior commitments of the director, it didn’t materialize. But, Nag continues to ask Vikram to pen a romantic entertainer for Akhil as he knows the capabilities of the director.
Vikram had in the recent past announced that his next films would be with Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu. Hence, the hide and seek game continues as far as Akhil’s second film is concerned.
