Preparing yourself for a particular role or character is fair enough and it is most needed these days but it is a different ballgame when you have to undergo a physical transformation for that. You have seen how young rebel star Prabhas and the towering hunk Daggubati Rana beefed up for the magnum opus ‘Baahubali’.
And their efforts paid rich dividends. Now it is heard that one budding hero is going through grueling sessions of training for martial arts. We are talking about the Akkineni prince Akhil and sources reveal he is taking special classes in martial arts. This has triggered speculations as to what could be the reason.
One version is that his next might be on the lines of international martial arts legends like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee hence Akhil has to fit into the role. You have already seen how he underwent Parkour training for his last release ‘Hello’. If it is going to be a Martial Arts kind of movie it is going to be one of its kind in Tollywood.
