There is a change of heroine in the highly anticipated debut film of Akkineni Akhil. Grand niece of legendary actor Dilip Kumar, Sayesha Saigal has been roped in as heroine for this film. Earlier Amyra Dastur was considered for this part, according to reports.
Sayesha Saigal too will be making her debut along with Akhil. Apart from this movie the yet to debut actress has already been approached for two highly anticipated films in Hindi, an action entertainer Shivay directed and starring Ajay Devgn himself and a superhero film produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Picture starring Tiger Shroff. She chose the former and rejected the latter as both were expected to go onto sets at the same time.
Coming back to Akhil’s debut, now that the most important part of casting is done, let’s hope the film gets to regular shoot soon after the grand launch on February 14 by Akkineni Nagarjuna. VV Vinayak is directing this debut movie on grand scale while actor Nithin produces it.
