Will announce my next on 10th Jan: Akhil Akkineni

Akhil Akkineni is pretty much relaxed. Saying that he doesn't look at numbers, the youngster talks about what went well for 'Hello!', what mistakes he did.

What went into preparing for the much-acclaimed action scenes?

Both ability and training. Capability is one thing. But I also had to put in hours and hours of physical training under Bob Brown's team of 16 trainers who were in Hyderabad. There was a separate trainer for each of the segments like running, jumping, etc. It was a long 60-day training regimen.

Nani now okay with Natural Star tag!

As Nani gears up for the release of 'MCA', he talks about what he goes by in selecting stories, teaming up with talented co-stars, his upcoming movies, and more. 

I choose relatable, enjoyable stories:

Right from the beginning, the one criterion by which I have chosen scripts is their ability to entertain me.  I listen to stories as an audience.  They should be relatable.  However, some of the films I did in the early years didn't work.  

Lack of background is a blessing:

What is the rationale behind the title?

Onscreen heroes are always special. They are definitely at a higher pedestal. You will understand the rationale behind the title once you watch the movie.

I love working in films : Lavanya

Who is doing the titular role in 'Radha'?
It's a unisex name. Both the hero and I are named Radha. I am playing a college student who is not very different. But look and characteristics, acting and behviour are definitely in the mold of a commercial actress. I have done a mass song, a modern number, a classical song in this movie.
