Considering all other heroes of tollywood, Akkineni Akhil has developed an unique quality that no star hero even think of achieving it. Akhil has a great passion of playing cricket right from his childhood. He was also trained by an Australian coach for some time. He has showed his extraordinary all round skills both through his batting as well as bowling in some of the charitable matches played by tollywood stars. Some of his fans, truly, wished that he would become an international cricket player on one day.
However, King Nagarjuna's revelation of Akhil's debut to tollywood as a hero shocked those fans who wish Akhil to become a reputed cricketer. However, many of Akkineni fans and movie goers are quite delighted with the decision of Akhil's doing movies. They are of the opinion that legacy of Akkineni will be continued for two to three decades with the emergence of Naga Chaitanya and Akhil as the heroes.
