A few weeks back an official announcement came out that young hero Akkineni Akhil’s stylish spy thriller, Agent will hit the screens during the Sankranthi festival season. Being directed by Surender Reddy, Agent has almost wrapped up its shooting formalities except for a few patchwork scenes.
Produced by Anil Sunkara in association with Surender Reddy, Agent has young Mumbai model Sakshi Vaidya as the female lead. When the announcement came out that Agent, many started doubting the film’s release in competition with stars like Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna. It is widely known that Chiranjeevi’s Walter Veeraiha under the direction of Bobby and NBK’s Veera Simha Reddy helmed by Gopichand Malineni are gearing up for a release during the Sankranthi festival season.
On the other hand, top producer Dil Raju’s film, Vaarasudu starring Kollywood star Vijay in the lead role is also gearing up for a same festival season release. News is also coming in that producer Dil Raju is blocking maximum screens across twin Telugu states by using his contacts for Vaarasudu. During this crucial juncture, the fresh buzz coming in from trade circles is that Agent’s release will be postponed further.
Inside sources reveal that if everything falls into place, Agent will be out in February during the Maha Shivaratri festival time. However, an official announcement is awaited.
