Ram Gopal Varma is on an announcing spree. The director took to Twitter to announce his latest project, an 'intense, realistic action thriller' with Akhil Akkineni. In a series of tweets put up late in the night (27 March), the director suggested that the film will be produced by Telegu star and Akhil Akkineni's father, Nagarjuna

Despite his friendship with Nagarjuna, which traces back to his first film, Shiva (1990), the director did not lose out on the chance to praise his new 'star', while pointing out the faults of the veteran Telugu superstar. 

The director went on to add that the film he is making with Akhil Akkineni is a "highly intense and extremely realistic action film and not at all a young cute love story."

The young actor was last seen in Telugu film Hello (2017), directed by Vikram K Kumar.
