"The project will be officially launched on August 29 to coincide with Nagarjuna's birthday. More details regarding the project will be revealed on the same day. The regular shooting will start from later this year," a source close to the actor told IANS.
Akhil, too, confirmed the news on Twitter:

More details soon just wanted to update you it's been way too long but I hope worth the wait :) will connect soon again! Love to all? Akhil Akkineni (@AkhilAkkineni8) July 27, 2016
Akhil made his debut as an actor last year with an eponymous titled Telugu film, which didn't do well at the box-office.
