King Nagarjuna's son Akhil is all set to entertain with his second outing Hello which is slated for grand release on Dec 22nd. Akhil is slipping into romantic avatar and is romancing Kalyani, daughter of Malayalam filmmaker Priyadarshan under the direction of Vikram Kumar of Manam fame. Film stars Jagapathy Babu and Ramya Krishna in important roles as Akhil's Parents. Anup Rubens is the music director for the film.
With Bollywood Star Salman Khan's film Tiger Zinda Hai releasing on the same day, this triggered speculation whether Akhil is fighting with Salman. Nani's MCA is also releasing on the same day and Nani rubbishing clash between him and Akhil posted "It’s not a war between us... it’s more like a war between us and Salman Khan :) This Christmas #MiddleClassAbbai will say #Hello to #Tiger ;) Telugu cinema,"
When Akhil was asked about it, he said “My debut film released the same day as Salman bhai’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Now my second film is coming with his Tiger Zinda Hai. I’ve spoken to him about it. There is no clash as such. He is so much bigger. I am just starting out. I just hope audiences will want to see both our films.”
On his marriage plans, Akhil said “None at all. I am not getting married for a very long time. My entire focus is on my career. Please pray for Hello to work. It’s my first major step towards making my parents proud by building a career like my father’s,”
