Akhil Akkineni and Niharika Konidela are very good friends. They came forward to play the lead roles in SS Karthikeya short film. But later, there were rumours that the actors are going to be a part of a feature film too which did not happen. There were speculations that both of them are going to work on a feature film and the same has been asked too. Akhil has come with a clear clarity on the rumour and said that nothing as such is currently happening.
Akhil Akkineni apparently revealed that the short film they worked on was filmed for a long period which had about 120 members as crew. It was also made on a good budget which even went over-budget. Akhil said that everyone assumed that they are shooting for a feature film seeing all that but it did not happen.
The short film that karthikeya directed was not released too!
