Nagarjuna is planning for a grand launch as he doesn’t want Akhil’s debut to misfire like Naga Chaitanya’s debut vehicle Josh. Chaitanya’s first film was directed by a debutante director Vasu Varma and his inexperience cost the Akkinenis dearly as Chaitanya failed to impress with first film. He is still struggling to find the stardom due to the bad start he had. Hence Nagarjuna wanted an experienced director to launch Akhil as hero.
After having talks with many directors and considering many names, Nagarjuna has decided that Srinu Vytla is a safe bet director to launch Akhil. Srinu Vytla has good relations with Nagarjuna. He made King movie with him. If the buzz is to be believed Vytla will direct Akhil’s first film. Will Nagarjuna produce it on his own banner or handover this project to some other producer has to be seen. Right now Vytla is busy with Aagadu starring Mahesh Babu.
