Director VV Vinayak who is going to wield the megaphone for this project is also voted in favour of Kona which brought him on board. “Kona gets lot of screenplay offers but he chooses that have potential to be a hit, so it seems, that he was impressed with Akhil’s debut script, so giving his Midas touch,” the source adds. Meanwhile, the heroine opposite Akhil hasn’t been finalized yet. All eyes are on whom Nag will rope in to pair up with Akhil.
