Your identity in the society as you grow is formed on the basis of your family lineage and that’s how people tend to perceive you till you create your own identity and mark. This is more among the star kids of the entertainment industry and they have a huge pressure and burden upon their shoulders.
So, you can imagine the kind of situation young Akkineni Akhil would be in. It is not just his father but his legendary grandfather who has set precedence hard to reach. Despite all that, Akhil seems to have come out of that image trap. Well, Akhil is in the image trap that he is ANR’s grandson and Nagarjuna’s son.
But instead of restricting himself to that image, he is showing his humility by being grounded, down to earth and doing things very jovially. His approach has struck a chord with many. On performance front, he is also not imitating his father. Nag did something similar when he made his debut and now Akhil is following the suit. Good going!
