Telugu actor Akkineni Nagarjuna's elder son Naga Chaitanya has already entered film industry and is waiting for a big break from his upcoming movies Tadakha and Autonagar Surya. Meanwhile, it is rumoured that his younger son Akhil Akkineni is ready for his debut. But Akhil has slammed the rumours of signing his debut film. He says that he is still gearing up to take the plunge.
On Thursday, Akhil Akkineni took to his Twitter page to silence the rumours. On his Twitter page, he posted, "Hey everyone! Just clearing the air, I haven't signed any movie at the moment. I'm still in the process of getting ready for my debut. A debut isn't a joke, so taking all the advice and help I need to set up the right script."
It was reported that Akhil would make his cinematic debut in upcoming Telugu comedy-drama Manam featuring his grandfather Nageswara Rao, father Nagarjuna, and elder brother Naga Chaitanya. "I'm more excited than anyone and I will announce as soon as I have finalised a project, very soon. Until then lying low and gearing up for the biggest day of my life," he further posted.
At the age of seven, Akhil entered the film industry as a child artist in Telugu comedy Sisindri, which was inspired by Hollywood film Baby's Day Out. Directed by Siva Nageswara Rao, the movie featured Nagarjuna and Tabu in the important roles. Released on September 14, 1995, the movie was a decent hit at the Box Office.
