Star families are ruling Tollywood and amidst many star families, Akkineni family is highly regarded. It evolved with the legendary Akkineni Nageswara Rao and flourished with the next generation led by Akkineni Nagarjuna. However, there are also those heroes who are yet to make a mark to match their family reputation.
One among them is Sushant. Though his surname is not Akkineni he belongs to the same fort and despite putting the best of his efforts in films like Kalidasu, Current and Adda, success has not favored him so far. But now things are likely to change. As per latest reports, Sushant is joining hands with a talented and sensible director.
He is Merlapaka Gandhi who made the film Venkatadri Express. This movie gave the much needed break-through for the young hero Sundeep Kishan and now Gandhi is about to start a new venture with Sushant. At a time when one hit would prompt the director to hunt for a star hero, it is interesting to see Gandhi opting for a struggler like Sushant. However, the Akkineni camp is rather happy that Sushant has fallen in right hands.
