Akhil Akkineni would play a debonair playboy in his next ‘Mr Majnu.’ He will be seen as someone who floors every girl he meets. What happens when he really falls in love. Akhil’s look is stunning, but there is no surprise element in the film. There have been many such films in the past.
Venky’s Prematho Raa and even Cherry’s Orange fall into the same category. Such films do not make it to the Tollywood hits list. The only hope for Akhil is that the audience have now changed and might accept playboy heroes.
The unit thinks that current generation might like playboy characters unlike the earlier generations and feel that when Tholiprema, which has a similar theme, succeed, why not Mr Majnu?
