Akkineni Akhil badly needs a big hit to stabilise his low lying career. For his third film, which is titled as Mr. Majnu, he is sparing no effort to deliver goods at box office. Initially, Akhil and his producer planned for December release.
As there are a slew of other films lined up for release in December, there are reports that Mr Majnu us likely to release in January. It is a known fact that Sankranthi season is already packed with biggies like NTR biopic, Ram Charan’s flick and Venky – Varun multi-starrer.
So, Akhil is aiming for Republic Day release as there are no other prominent releases at that time. Out of blue, director Krish’s latest announcement about NTR biopic has dashed Akhil’s hopes. Krish announced that the second part of NTR biopic will hit the screens on January 24th. This surprise announcement has dealt a blow to Akhil’s plans.
NTR biopic is carrying solid craze among audience. So, Akhil’s film need to outclass NTR biopic at box office to have a strong run if it releases during the same period. It remains to be seen if Akhil and his producer will decide and lock horns with NTR biopic or will they back out from the race and look for another ideal date.
