Scion of a legendary clan, Akhil Akkineni is establishing his feet in the industry.
Age and Height
Akhil Akkineni was born on 8 April 1994 and is 24 years old as of 2018. He stands 5 feet 9 inches tall.
Akhil was in a long relationship with fashion designer Shriya Bhupal and eventually got engaged to her, but the engagement ended in February 2017. Since then, Akhil has concentrated only on his career.
Akhil was born in San Jose, USA and comes from the illustrious Akkineni family, one of the most prominent film families in the country. He is the son of superstar Nagarjuna and his second wife Amala Akkineni. Actor Akkineni Naga Chaitanya is his half-brother and actress Samantha Chaitanya is his sister-in-law. He is the grandson of legendary actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao.
Akhil Akkineni actually made his first debut as a child in his father's film Sisindri when he was just 1 year old.
In 2014, Akhil was approached to play a small role in the film Manan which already starred his father Nagarjuna and grandfather Nageswara Rao. The film was more of a farewell film for his legendary grandfather. Akhil Akkineni made his proper debut with the 2015 film Akhil. The film received mixed reviews and was a box office disaster. Akhil then took a long break from movies and returned in 2017 with Hello, which was both commercially and critically successful. His next film Mr Majnu will release early in 2019.
The broken engagement between Akhil and Shriya Bhupal was a major controversy in Tollywood, and some suggest that it was due to Akhil getting cold feet before marriage.
A tiff broke out between filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma and Akhil Akkineni after the latter's father stalled the project due to RGV's tendency of being surrounded in controversies.
Akhil is a huge fan of filmmaker Christopher Nolan, and most of Nolan's films count among his favourites. Akhil is extrovert by nature and loves to travel and hang out with his friends.
For his first role as a toddler in Sisindri, Akhil won the Filmfare South Best Child Actor award. For his full debut film Akhil, he won the Filmfare South Best Debut Actor award.
Since 2011, Akhil has played for Telugu Warriors in the Celebrity Cricket League and even captained it in 2015. Long before making his movie debut, Akhil appeared in a popular Titan watch ad with Kalki.
