Star Director Surender Reddy has announced his next with Akkineni hero Akhil earlier in September 2020. The film is expected to hit the floors after Akhil's upcoming film Most Eligible Bachelor gets released.
In the meantime, the Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is on the hunt for the female lead. It is said that Surender Reddy has finalized a model to romance Akhil in his next.
According to the grapevine, the ace director saw Mumbai based model Sakshi Vaidya in one of the advertisements and called her Hyderabad to conduct a photoshoot of her.
The filmmaker is said to have impressed with the Mumbai model and reportedly roped in her promptly in the untitled film opposite the Akkineni hero. However, a formal announcement is awaited from the makers to confirm the news.
The untitled film is tentatively titled #Akhil5. While Surender Reddy will helm the project, his own production house Surrender2Cinema will bankroll the project in association with the AK Entertainments banner.
