Buzz! Akhil Akkineni as an aboriginal in his next


The talk of the town is that Akhil Akkineni will be essaying the role of a tribal person who fiercely protects his land in his upcoming movie, which is yet to be given a name. The to-be-shot film will be directed by a newcomer named Anil Kumar and produced by the Vamsi-Pramod duo on UV Creations.

It is also learned that the film is going to be have a reincarnation element in the second half. Akhil has been asked to grow a flowing hair and a very messy beard as part of the preparation for this unconventional role.

The character will be one-of-its-kind for Akhil. He was seen in classy, urbane avatars in his previous movies.

Growing a beard that covers 3/4th of the face has been an easy route for actors in Telugu cinema for the past few years. Ever since Ram Charan did it successfully in 'Rangasthalam', Telugu actors have loved the beard. Naga Chaitanya is going to be seen with his face covered in beard in 'Thandel'. Nani was seen with a messy beard in 'Dasara'.
