Mr Manju trailer: Akhil Akkineni has copious amounts of Casanova charm in this Venky Atluri film
Actors Izabelle Leite, Naga Babu and Priyadarshi also feature in Mr Manju which is helmed by Venky Atluri
Akhil Akkineni's upcoming feature Mr Manju seems to have a relatable plot. The makers recently released the trailer, which features Akhil along with Nidhhi Agerwal. Set in present times, Mr Manju traces Akhil's character journey as he swiftly moves on from one woman to the other. While his relationships, flings and girl friends keep increasing, he finally meets Nidhhi's character.
The woman is steadfast that his Casanova charm will not work with her. But two fight sequences later, she has an epiphany that he is the one. While he tries to explain that a month is the maximum lifetime of his 'relationships', she convinces him to enter one. With the passage of time the two realise the seriousness of their bond and re-evaluate their priorities in life.
Mr Manju was in fact also the title of one of Akhil's father and superstar Nagarjuna's films.
Actors Izabelle Leite, Naga Babu and Priyadarshi also feature in the film which is helmed by Venky Atluri. Atluri also shares writing credits on this film.
Akhil's last outing was in Hello, which was helmed by Vikram Kumar. Hello had gone on to perform well at the box office.
