Not buoyed with the stupendous response for Akhil Akkineni’s 30-seconds splashy debut in Manam, doting dad Nagarjuna says, “Akhil is yet to prove himself as hero. He has just made his screen presence for 30 seconds. People do look good in 30-sec advertisements, as a hero Akhil is yet to prove his prowess.”
Despite not getting carried away with the response, Nag is a happy man. “Yes, I’m happy that Akhil is being compared with Mahesh Babu. Few are even saying that Akhil is competition for Naga Chaitanya. To me, I’m big competition for Akhil. I’ll compete with him.”
Nag has finally revealed the plans for Akhil’s debut that is going to take place this year. Nagarjuna himself is going to produce the film. However, director and other cast is yet to be made public.
