Akhil Akkineni is a three-film old actor and is yet to taste a box office success. He is pinning his hopes on his fourth film which will be helmed by Bommarillu Bhaskar for Allu Aravind’s banner Geetha Arts. A few days ago there were reports that King Nagarjuna is going to jump in to give financial support for Akhil's upcoming project. And now, few sources close to Geetha Arts camp have ridiculed this.
Geetha Arts seems to have taken the responsibility on them to give a hit film for Akhil and Bommarillu Bhaskar to cement each other’s place in Tollywood. Rumors have that Arvind has laid cap on the budget and decided to make the film with only 20 crores. But Nagarjuna is said to have intervened to say that he will be investing the rest of the money the project needs, such that the film will look lavish and great.
However, a source close to Allu Arvind says that there is no truth in such rumors as they have decided that to make this film on a minimal budget such that Akhil will get his first ever profit-making movie. Despite collecting crores of shares, most of Akhil's three movies ended up as cost-failures. And that's the reason they are thinning out the expenditure. Also, King Nagarjuna is not at all interfering in this project as he believes in Arvind and knows that he would do the right thing.
