If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, superstar Rajinikanth will introduce Akhil Akkineni to Tamil industry at an event in Chennai early next month.
Akhil's debut film titled Akhil, which will be dubbed and released in Tamil too, will have a simultaneous release in Tamil as well on October 22.
"Producer C. Kalyan has acquired the rights of the Tamil dubbed version of the film. He's planning an event to officially introduce Akhil to Tamil industry and he's invited Rajinikanth to grace this occasion," a source revealed.
The source further added that Rajinikanth, who is currently shooting for Tamil film Kabali, is yet to confirm his participation.
Directed by V.V. Vinayak, Akhil also features Sayyeshaa, grand-niece of veteran actor Dilip Kumar.
