Akhil Akkineni is undergoing a physical transformation for his next film and the recent pictures he posted on social media are proof.
The actor shared pictures of him working out at the gym and wrote, “It’s time to up my game. Intensity and hard work. Something extremely special has begun. My transformation to being the best version of my self. This is going to change a lot for me. More to come soon…#BeingTheBestVersionOfMyself.” (sic) He can be seen dressed in a black sleeveless tee and a maroon fit tee-shirt, lifting weights and flaunting his ripped biceps. The actor has also made it clear that he’s transforming to be the ‘best version’ of himself.
Akhil was last seen in Mr Majnu in 2019 and he will soon be seen in Most Eligible Bachelor with Pooja Hegde as his co-star. Shoot for the film was in progress and the film was supposed to hit screens in April this year. Release has been postponed to next year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Over a hundred actresses and models were reportedly auditioned for the female lead before it went to Pooja Hegde.
While Akhil has not officially announced what his next film will be after Most Eligible Bachelor, recently there were rumours that he will soon star in Surender Reddy’s next film. Buzz is that the film will go on floors next year and that the makers will announce the film once they finalise shoot. However, an official confirmation from the director and actor is awaited.
