Akhil Akkineni is confident of delivering a big hit with his upcoming film Hello. He also appreciated the support from director Vikram Kumar and his parents Nagarjuna and Amala Akkineni.

Akhil Akkineni made his debut as a hero with 2015 film Akhil-The Power of Jua, which was released amidst huge hype, promotion and expectations, but bombed at the box office. The actor has taken two years to come back with his next film Hello, which is slated hit to the screens on December 22.

Nagarjuna, who is producing Hello under Annapurna Studios, held a grand function for its audio launch at MGM Ground in Vizag on Sunday evening. Addressing the event, Akhil Akkineni said that the last two years have not been an easy journey, as he was low. He thanked his parents and Vikram Kumar for standing by him.

Akhil Akkineni said, "The last one-year journey has been quite emotional for me and I don't know how to explain it in words. If I am standing in front of you so much confidence, it is because of my father and mother. I can only thank them for the amount of support they have shown me. My way of showing gratitude is making them proud by doing Hello."

The young actor added, "Vikram Kumar found me at a time when I was really low and he deserved a better actor. I was very low and my energy and confidence level was very low. You made me find myself through Hello. I can only say thank you for now. But you are a brother for my life. I will always be there for you at any time."

Akhil became very emotional as he addressed the fans of Akkineni family. He said, "Ever since my last film hit screens, you have been supporting me. You have encouraged me with your response for everything including ads I did for the last years. I thank you for it. I am ready to deliver a hit. Are you ready for it?"

Akhil Akkineni will be seen romancing Kalyani Priyadarshan in the romantic action drama written and directed by Vikram Kumar of Manam fame. Anup Rubens has composed music for the songs, which are getting a good response from the music lovers.
