The 18 year old Sayesha Saigal made her debut with the 21 year old Akhil. It makes sense. Now the teenager is playing Ajay Devgan’s love interest in Shivay, to be directed and produced by Ajay Devgan. The gap between 18 and 46, which is Ajay’s age is huge but it looks like actor is okay with it. Ajay reportedly took one year break to prepare for this film and the shoot has just begun. His previous films Himmatwala and Action Jackson were disasters. He even got a lot of flak for his acting in the Hindi version of Drishyam. The movie worked in all languages but it is only Ajay who was severely criticised by movie critics for his emotionless and expression less acting. Ajay has reportedly announced that the film Shivay will be the most expensive project.
Akhil Akkineni is busy wrapping up last leg of shoot of his debut film Akhil in Austria. With this European song shoot schedule, shooting of the film will be completed.
Akhil is coordinating with his public relations team in a big way and is planning a huge promotional campaign for this prestigious project. Bollywood style campaign has been planned which involves touring multiple cities in India ans Overseas for promoting the film. 3 cities in USA have been earmarked by the team and modalities of the tour are being worked out.
Sayesha Sehgal is paired with Akhil in this film. Akhil has an ensemble album composed by Thaman and Anoop Rubens. Young hero Nithin is making his production debut with this film. Akhil is slated to release on October 21st 2015. V.V.Vinayak promises to deliver an out and out mass film with a socio-fantasy touch.
