After retrospection of his debut debacle, Akhil Akkineni was recently seen cheering winning Celebrity cricket league. Speculations were rife over his second film. Several directors' names floated in headlines. However nothing has been finalized by Nagarjuna and Akhil. The latest update is that the father – son duo has finally arrived at conclusion. Reliable sources reveal that Akhil's second movie would be a remake of Bollywood super hit, Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani.
The Ranbir Kapoor – Deepika Padukone starrer romantic entertainer released in 2013 turned a huge blockbuster. Karan Johar produced it under Dharma Productions. Nagarjuna has approached Karan to acquire remake rights. Since Dharma productions doesn't have a custom of selling remake rights, Nag has obliged to produce the movie under his prestigious Annapurna Studios banner in association with Dharma Productions.
Filmnagar folks believe that the film is perfect choice for young hero as Akhil. The Akkineni lad also looks apt to reprise Ranbir's role. It has to be seen who will be selected to reprise Deepika's role which is crucial in the movie. The director is yet to be finalized. Meanwhile, top writers are tweaking the script to suit Telugu sensibilities. If everything falls in place, the film will take off by May.
