Akkineni’s young scion Akhil is all set to test his luck by re-launching himself with the flick Hello. He is betting big on his name, career and money of his father Nagarjuna under this flick.
Akhil debuted into Tollywood with the disaster Akhil-The Power of Jua. The director V.V Vinayak and producer Nithin spent a bomb on this flick as the craze of Akhil touched peaks prior to the release. Finally, the movie which was made with 40 crores ended up as a disaster. Seems Akhil is repeating the same mistake as he has made his father Nagarjuna to spend almost 30 crores for Hello’s production. With high voltage fights and top technicians, Akhil completed this movie in a rich way. Along with this, he is spending 3-5 crores to promote this flick abroad along with his cousin Rana. All in all, this movie has done a pre-release business of almost 35 crores and it needs to collect 40 crores to declare it as a hit. For a hero like Akhil, this amount is a big thing to crack. Also, the competition from Nani’s MCA releasing one day prior and Allu Sirish’s Okka Kshanam on 28th would affect this flick’s release.
This movie is directed by classy maker Vikram K Kumar. Nagarjuna bankrolled this flick under Annapurna Studios and Manam Banner. Music is scored by Anup Rubens. The movie is releasing on 22nd December as a Christmas gift.
