Akhil Iyer could not have expected more from his Bollywood debut movie Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. The success of his first Hindi project has now set a good platform for his movies in Kollywood.
Many might not be aware of the fact that Akhil Iyer had signed two movies in Kollywood before taking up Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. He had given green signal to Anbu G directorial Iruvar Ondranal and Nijama Nizhala.
The young actor grew up in Bangalore before moving to Chennai a few years ago. He honed his acting skills in theatre and did a couple of commercials before signing the Tamil movies, which are in post-production stages. Akhil Iyer will be seen in the lead role in Nijama Nizhala and the second lead in Iruval Ondranal.
Iruvar Ondranal has been getting decent publicity. It is a romantic-comedy movie starring PR Prabhu, Krithika Malini and Akhil in the main lead roles. Whereas, Nijama Nizhala is an off-beat thriller flick.
Even though, his officially signed first movie is Iruvar Ondranal, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil released first. Nonetheless, it has become a dream debut for the budding star. He will be seen in the role named Mahesh in the Hindi movie, which has Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth in the lead roles.
