Initially, news broke out that Akkineni young lad Akhil will soon team up with Surender Reddy for a film. While the truth of it is yet unknown, there came another gossip that director Veeru Potla is also planning to make his comeback by doing a project with Akhil. Speculations also went rife that Veeru met the actor and narrated the plot, and Akhil asked the director to come up with a full-fledged script. But it turned out to be a baseless rumour. Veeru himself quashed the fake news and said that he has no such plans. However, he added that if he gets a chance to direct Akhil, he will not forgo it.
