Koratala Shiva to direct Akkineni hero
A lot is being said about Akhil’s second movie for many days now. The actor, who faced a hiccup with the disastrous result of his debut film as hero, is uncertain about his next project. Though Nagarjuna is overseeing all the developments about Akhil closely, nothing is falling in place for the Akkineni scion. A few days ago the name of Vamshi Paidipally has cropped up but there seems to be no truth in it as the Oopiri director has committed to work with a top star for his next. The latest we hear is that Akhil has set his eyes on director Koratala Shiva. If everything goes as planned, Shiva will be directing Akhil in the Telugu remake of Malayalam blockbuster Kammatti Paadam. DVV Danayya is set to bankroll this project which is likely to go onto the floors only after Shiva wraps up Janatha Garage.
