Akhil Akkineni, the young scion of Akkineni's, doesn't want to be called Nava Manmadhudu or Nava Samrat.
"I am not too keen on these titles in front of names," Akhil declares.
His father is called as 'King' and also referred as 'Manmadhudu'.
"I am aware of this but I feel shy or awkward if someone calls me with such tags. Let the superstars have such names. I am just an upcoming actor," he further explains with honest approach.
Akhil surprised everyone by singing a song from his upcoming movie on stage of SIIMA at Abu Dhabi.
"The song is from my new film that is directed by Vikram Kumar. It was (music director) Anup who persuaded me to perform on stage. We did rehearsals for about 30 hours," he continued.
Akhil further revealed that the movie that is doing is an action romantic drama.
"It is more of a love story than an action drama but the action episodes will be novel. International action choreographers shot them. But in Vikram Kumar's movie you will find human emotions more. He is pulling things out of me that I didn't know I had. I am very excited to working with him," he said.
