Akhil Akkineni injured on sets of Most Eligible Bachelor, shoot halted
While comedy fight sequence, Akhil Akkineni injured his right elbow and the doctors have asked him to take rest for a while
The shoot for Most Eligible Bachelor, which commenced last year, came to a grinding halt after its protagonist Akhil Akkineni sustained an injury on his right hand on the sets. The team was shooting a comedy fight sequence in the suburbs of Hyderabad when the actor suffered the injury.
"Akhil's right elbow was swollen and he has been advised a week's rest by the doctors. As a result, the shooting of the film has been halted. The actor is currently recuperating at home and is expected to resume work after March 10," informs a source.
Directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar, Most Eligible Bachelor has Pooja Hegde as the female lead. While she plays a stand-up comedian, Akhil will be seen as an NRI, who returns to India to find his soul mate.
Produced by Bunny Vas and Vasu Varma, Most Eligible Bachelor has music by Gopi Sundar. The makers are planning to release the film in May.
