Akhil had to wait a while before signing his second film. After a disastrous and costly debut, things took time to fall into place. He has started work on Mana director Vikram’s next. In a series of tweets Akhil posted the movie’s progress.

Apparently the film is a new age story and pre production work is in full swing. Director Vikram Kumar is known for stories with a twist. His Manam and 24 handled the topics of time travel and rebirth in a very contemporary way.

Apparently Megha Akash will be Akhil co-star in this movie. Official confirmation is awaited

For the last one year patience has been my best friend. Time can move along very slowly but it picks up eventually and at the right time

My genius director Vikram is coming up with some really new age stuff! Very exciting times and I’m so happy the wait has been worth it 🙏🏻
