During the discussions of Akhil's second film, there was a rumor that Nagarjuna wanted Sukumar to direct Akhil but the project did not take off because of several reasons. Now, after the success of Rangasthalam, Sukumar is not in a mood to direct small heroes anymore. He already got an offer from Bollywood film industry. Meanwhile, Nagarjuna convinced Sukumar to provide the story for Akhil's next movie.
Palnati Surya Prathap who directed Kumari 21 F is expected to helm the megaphone for this project. The entire team of Kumari 21 F is expected to come forward for this upcoming movie. The film will be a joint production of Sukumar Writings and Annapurna Studios. The story is already ready and the final confirmation is pending from Nagarjuna.
Sukumar readied the story for Raj Tarun but it is finally coming to Akhil's rescue. Akhil is currently busy with Venky Atluri's project. A confirmation will arrive on Sukumar's project soon.
