Allu Aravind, it is learnt, has decided to do a film with Akkineni Akhil. He has two directors on hand. One is Bommarillu Bhaskar and the other is Geethagovindam Parasuram. Both have been asked to narrate stories to Akhil. He will chose the story he likes to do. Sources say he will most likely work with Parasuram as working with a hit director is always better than working with an out-of-work director.
Akhil’s last outing Mr Majnu had a moderate run. Despite having a crazy director, the film could not last beyond three days.
But, the issue is director Parasuram is unhappy. After doing such a big hit as Geetha Govindam, he is not happy working with a young actor like Akhil. After Geetha Govindam, several big heroes wanted to work with him, but contractual obligations kept him confined to Geetha Arts. His contemporary Anil Ravipudi is now directing Mahesh Babu. Now Parasuram has to work with Akhil and he has to ensure the film notches up a hit.
