Boyapati Sreenu is known for penning powerful protagonist roles. He has the knack of coming up with massy characters. But this time around, Boyapati Sreenu is apparently coming up with an author-backed role for the female lead role in Akhanda. He is said to have designed a meaty role for Pragya Jaiswal who plays the leading lady in the film. Pragya confirmed the same in her recent interaction with noted national media publication, IANS.

"My look in the film is very different. The director, Boyapati sir, went through my look from every single previous film of mine and he made sure that I do something different and unique in this film, yet sticking to the character that I am playing. So that was a huge challenge for him but he wanted to give complete changeover and freshness to my character. He has worked very hard and gone into every single detail to design this look for me and I am really looking forward to the film's release. I can't wait for the audience to see our labour of love. It's Boyapati sir's film, so you know it's going to be a theatre movie and there is going to be a lot of action, drama and fun. It's a super exciting story. I am really excited that first song from my film has finally released. ‘Adiga adiga' is my favourite song, which I think is a very beautiful song. The voices of singers SP Charan and Shruti are the sweetest and do complete justice. The song has been shot beautifully and I think I am looking my most beautiful in this. I am really excited that everyone got a glimpse of the song in lyrical video," she says in the interview with IANS.

There are reports that Akhanda is gearing up for theatrical release this Dussehra season but the makers are yet to drop an official announcement on the same. The film is in the final leg of shoot now. The makers plan to wrap up the shoot by the end of this month and then release the film on the 13th of October. This is highly unlikely but the makers are said to be planning the same.
