Boyapati Srinu and Balakrishna’s combo is one the deadliest one which is sure for Nandamuri fans to set them on rampage. The filmmaker also has the finesse of picking up a villain which has equal weightage and larger-than-life image akin to the hero.
For Akhanda, sober Srikanth is the baddie who essays as Vardharajan. The actor has spilled beans about his negative role, how Balakrishna reacted upon knowing his role and how his scenes with Balayya Babu took off on the sets. Boyapati who had worked with Sriknath in Sarrainodu was keen to cast him in a negative shade and it happened through Akhanda.
Srikanth reveals that Balakrishna gave a lot of support upon knowing that he would be the villain. “Balakrishna himself said that as they have acted in Sri Rama Rajyam together, it would help me to get a change through the role. If it wasn’t for his support, then I wouldn’t have been in Akhanda,” says Srikanth.
Meanwhile, social media is agog praising Balakrishna for giving an offer to Srikanth. It is known that Srikanth shares a great rapport with Mega family, in fact, it is also said that he is one among Mega family members. Despite being close to Chiranjeevi’s family, Sriknath getting a meaty role in Akhanda is praiseworthy. And netizens are praising Balayya Babu for his gesture as this could boost Srikanth’s career who is in a low phase now.
