Senior Filmmaker Ravi Raja Pinnisetty’s son, Sathya Prabhas Pinisetty bagged a good hit with Malupu in 2016. The movie is a success in Telugu as well as Tamil. The young director since then is after Akhil Akkineni to do a Sport based film with him. Akhil who is waiting for the first break of his career wanted to do this as his second project.
But Hello happened and the director waited. Akhil did not give a chance for the third project as well and took up Mr. Majnu. He promised to do the film after Mr. Majnu but the film’s result changed the equations. Now, Akhil wanted to work with Bommarillu Bhaskar. Sathya Prabhas wasted around three precious years of time for Akhil.
