Akhil's first film Akhil ended up as a huge failure as the makers spent a lot on it. Despite Akhil's dismal show, Nagarjuna is spending a bomb on his younger son's second film Hello. As per grapevine, estimated budget of Hello is a whopping Rs. 45 crore.
Hello is a romantic comedy blended with action and adventure. Genius director Vikram Kumar in his usual style is mixing various genres for this high budget film.
Hello is said to be the costliest film ever from Annapurna Studios. Nagarjuna who generally doesn’t tend to spend beyond the market value is going all out for his son.
Nag wants Hello to establish Akhil Akkineni as a star. He has pinned lot of hopes on Vikram Kumar who made the magical Manam with the Akkineni family.
Hello is into last leg of production stage. It will hit the screens on Dec 22. Director Priyadarshan’s daughter Kalyani is the female lead in the film.
Meanwhile, Ram Gopal Varma is making plans to launch his next film with Nagarjuna. It may start rolling after Nag is done with promotions of Hello.
