After two back to back flops with Akhil and Hello, Akhil Akkineni waited a lot of time before kick starting his third film. Venky Atluri, who scored a decent hit with Varun Tej's Tholi Prema, is directing Akhil3 and the shooting began in London earlier this week.
Meanwhile, there have been a few speculations about Akhil's fourth movie of late. The Akkineni lad was rumoured to be in talks with a couple of star directors, but there has been no official update on the his next project.
But we have exclusively learnt that Akhil has already finalised his 4th movie. A source close to the development revealed that Akhil has okayed popular writer Gopi Mohan's script before flying to London.
Gopi Mohan had penned the scripts for hits like Nagarjuna's King, Dookudu, Ready and Nuvvu Nenu etc. Akhil's fill will mark Gopi Mohan's debut as a director. Top production house PVP Cinema, which bankrolled Nag's Oopiri, will produce the movie. More details will emerge in a few days.
