Akhil’s third film ‘Mr Majnu’ that is under progress will not be competing with other movies in December.The producer BVSN Prasad recently announced that the movie would be hitting the screens on December 21, on the eve of Christmas holidays.
Akkineni family considers the month of December their lucky month, but now Akhil is forced to opt out from December.This December 21, YSR’s biopic “Yatra” starring Mammotty is releasing in a big way. On the same day, Varun Tej and Aditi Rao starrer Sankalp Reddy’s space thriller “Antariksham” is hitting the screens.
The makers have decided not to compete with these much-awaited movies. Akhil has had no success in his career so far. He needs solo release to get a hit.The next ideal date would have been January 25 as Republic Day weekend would have brought good openings.
But suddenly, the makers of NTR biopic have announced second part on that day. So, Akhil’s “Mr Majnu” is going to be released as Valentine’s Day special in February second week.”Mr Majnu” is directed by Venky Atluri of “Toli Prema” fame. BVSN Prasad is producing it. The film has completed a major schedule in London recently. Nidhi Agerwal is the heroine.
The delay works in favour of the chocolate-boy image that Akhil has for now. Since he is pretty popular with young girls, if the film happens to be a candy-floss love story, Akhil could well have his first hit!
