The much-awaited audio launch of Akkineni Akhil's Hello was held in a grand style in Vizag on Sunday evening.
The entire unit of Akhil and Nagarjuna have attended the event. Nagarjuna praised director Vikram Kumar to the skies and thanked him for bringing back the energetic him. “Vastunnam, Blockbuster kodutunnam, idi fix,” Nagarjuna said.
Nagarjuna said that he promised Akhil that he will be relaunching him when this project started. " I told the same when Naga Chaitanya's Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam was about to release and we scored a hit. After that we have been busy with Akhil's work. I thought a lot about how Akhil's next movie should be. Vikram Kumar's Manam script bid goodbyes to my father as an actor and gave such a great script to Akhil too.
You will all see Akhil in the same way you wanted to see. Akkineni Nageswara Rao taught dance and grace to Telugu cinema and I can see ANR when I am looking at Akhil. Priyadarshan introduced Amala to me with the song 'Hello Guru Prema Kosame Ra' and his daughter Kalyani working in Akhil's Hello movie might be destiny. When everyone said to cancel audio function in Vizag because of the cyclone warning, Annapurna team encouraged us to go and father will look after everything. I don't know if it is destiny or father's blessings the event took place successfully," he said.
Kalyani Priyadarshan, who is making debut into Tollywood with Akhil, said "Mom.. Dad.. if you guys hadn't been so supportive, I wouldn't have been able to get into this industry with so much confidence. Nag sir, my dad told me when i joined this project that being launched by you is going to be the best thing that happens in my life.
The best because nobody will guide me in the way that you have and the worst because you have set the standard so high for any producer that I think i can't be as happy working with them as I have been with you. Thank you so much for that. Vikram sir, being a Priya in your film is something that every actress wishes for and I am so lucky to be able to cross that off my wishlist so early. Thank you so much."
The film is all set to hit the theaters on December 22.
