Vikram Kumar to direct Akhil ?Aug 22, 2016 05:16 AM
Hanu Raghavapudi was supposed to direct Akhil Akkineni's second movie and the project was about to go on floors. But due to some issues, Nithiin replaced the Akkineni hero in this movie.
Now the reports suggest that Vikram Kumar of 'Manam' and '24' fame may helm Akhil's second film and the discussions already took place. An official announcement is expected soon. Nagarjuna wanted Akhil to work with his family members again after 'Manam' and he would be happy if Vikram directs Akhil.
Earlier, Vamsi Paidipally was also considered as the director. But he backed out and is currently working on the script for Mahesh Babu's movie.
