Akhil Akkineni’s woes seems to be getting denser. Recently some clarity was emerging regarding his next film. His father Nagarjuna wanted director Vamsi Paidipally who made the superhit film Oopiri to direct Akhil’s second film. The talk was to remake Ranbir Kapoor starrer Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani.
But now Vamsi Padipally seems to have other plans. He does not want to remake other films. His Oopiri was a remake of the French film The intouchables. The director feels that if he keeps making remake films then he will just be limited to that.
He wants to direct new stories and show his talent. Vamsi has therefore refused to make a remake of this Bollywood film. With that said, Akhil will now have to look for another director and Vamsi Paidipally will have to focus on a fresh story for his next film.
