King Nagarjuna for long dreamed of seeing his youngest son Akhil as a star on silver screen. He launched him in a never seen before extravagant manner with Akhil-The Power of Jua with celebrities from all walks of life from across the country promoting him.
However the film bombed at the box office and Nag after taking a long time, re-launched him with a romantic entertainer Hello. Though Akhil's performance won applause, the film directed by Vikram Kumar too tanked at the box office.
Nagarjuna using his influence roped in Tholi Prema fame director Venky Atluri for Akhil's third venture. The film Mr Majnu generated tremendous interest but despite its content, it is turning out to be another flop.
With Akhil's three films turning out to be disasters, Nag is in a shock. This is because Hello and Mr Majnu had good content but still they did not turn out to be even average grossers. Now Nag is holding an emergency meeting with his known film critics, senior fans and is seeking advice from all biggies as to which genres and films will suit Akhil.
Though before Mr Majnu release, Akhil gave green signal for couple of projects, after the film's result, doubts are on whether Akhil should do romantic entertainers. Akhil did not get favorable results though he tried action in Akhil-The Power of Jua, romance and action in Hello and romance and family drama in Mr Majnu.
Now Nag is thinking whether Akhil can try any concept based thriller. Fans advised Nag to rope in top director for his next without thinking about the budget. Nag too though tasted failures at the start of his career, scored hits like Geetanjali and Shiva. Wonder when Akhil's turn will come.
