The makers of "Akhil: The Power of Jua" reportedly held a special screening for the Censor Board officials on Thursday. They have award U/A certificate without any suggestion to delete or mute any part of the film.
Written by Veligonda Srinivas, "Akhil: The Power of Jua" is a socio-fantasy film. The makers have kept the story of the film under wraps, but if we are to go by reports, it is about an official who tries to take a special stone from a village. The trailer of the movie has given a hint at its story.
