Tollywood: Pan-India market is the way forward for Tollywood superstars. Prabhas had already attained pan-India popularity with the Baahubali duology and he is the biggest pan-India superstar in the country now.
He is also one of the top most heroes in Indian cinema when it comes to box office pull. Then comes Allu Arjun who attained ultra wide popularity and reach with Pushpa.
Ram Charan and Jr NTR are set to get the same with RAjamouli’s RRR. Now, we might have a new addition to the list and it is none other than Akhil Akkineni.
Akhil Akkineni is set to debut in the pan-India market, say the latest reports. It is being said that none other than Bollywood’s most influential producer Karan Johar will be handling Akhil’s maiden pan-India film.
Karan Johar had always been interested in working with Akhil for a big-ticket project but things did not go quite as planned till now. Finally, Akhil has decided it is time to test his luck in the pan-India circuit and he has apparently decided to sign the project.
Akhil is currently busy with Agent which has himself and Malayalam superstar Mammootty in the lead roles. Akhil might be working with Karan Johar once he is done with Agent.
Karan has assumed full responsiblity of Akhil’s maiden pan-India project and he is expected to allot the dates for the project soon after Karan Johar picks the director for the project and locks the script.
Karan has many top directors in his camp and it would not be too tough for him to pick a director for Akhil. More details about this project might emerge soon after the script and the director are locked which might not be too far from now.
Akhil might soon start preaparing for the big project that could determine his pan-India market prospects.
