Akhil to team up with Psycho director

No young actor had such a hype which Akkineni Akhil had. All that got fizzed out with his debut film itself. Nagarjuna came into the picture and brought Vikram Kumar on board but that too did not work out as Hello bombed at the box office by bringing loss to Nagarjuna. Now, Akhil’s third film is Mr. Majnu which is more or less ready for a year-end release.

According to our sources, Akhil is showing interest in working with director Mysskin. The director has been in the industry from a long time but only a few of his films became decent hits at the box office. Some of his movies are ‘Mugamoodi’, ‘Yuddham Sei’ and the recent Vishal starrer, ‘Detective’. He is currently busy with his next project ‘Psycho’. If the buzz is to be believed, Udhayanidhi Stalin has narrated a thriller script to Akhil who was impressed with it. It is known that the probability of thriller films becoming hits is very high.

If it is a well acted and well-executed script, then any thriller movie can rake good numbers at the box office. So, Akhil who is planning to establish a good career in the film industry is showing interest in trying his hand in this genre as none of his regular movies is making it big at the box office.
