Names of several directors did rounds in the media all these months. Recently, Akhil himself announced that he will team up with Hanu Raghavapudi for his second project, but the project shelved due to Hanu’s contractual issues with a production house.
Amidst the increasing rumours that Maruthi has been finalized to direct Akhil’s second project, Nagarjuna has just ended all the suspense with just one tweet. Nag tweeted a while ago – “Sept rocks for me/announcing films with two of my star directors.KALYAN with NagaChaitanya//VIKRAM KUMAR with Akhil.On the floors very soon”.
So, it’s now loud and clear that Vikram Kumar, who first showcased Akhil’s charisma and screen presence in Manam, will direct the Akkineni lad’s second film. The announcement will be made soon after Vikram’s marriage.
