Telugu movie Hello is set for a grand release as a Christmas treat on December 22, and Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati is going all out to help Akhil Akkineni score a hit at box office by promoting it in the US.
Rana Daggubati is undoubtedly the most friendly and generous Telugu actor, and has maintained very good relationship with every young actor, actress and director around. It is also known that he often posts promos of their movies and garners attention for them on his Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The success of the Baahubali films made Rana Daggubati an internationally-acclaimed actor. The movie doubled his fanbase not only in India, but also in some foreign countries — especially in North America.
Besides pushing the promos of Hello on social media, the actor has decided to go a step further for Akhil Akkineni. He has gone on to promote the film with Akhil in the US.
Akhil Akkineni informed his Twitter followers from the US on December 5 that he would be visiting the country. He tweeted: "HELLO! My dear USA friends :) any guesses on who's coming with me to see you guys ?????? [sic]"
Minutes later, Rana Daggubati released a poster featuring him with Akhil Akkineni. This photo also revealed the schedule of their US trip. Akhil retweeted his post and wrote: "Proudly presenting my partner in crime and my partner for HELLO! USA ..... the hulkster him self @RanaDaggubati. [sic]"
As promised, Rana Daggubati accompanied Akhil Akkineni during his US trip and attended the promotional events of Hello in New Jersy and Dallas on December 15 and 16. These functions witnessed the presence of a massive number of filmgoers. It was definitely due to the magic created by Rana Dagguabti.
Akhil Akkineni could not stop thanking viewers in New Jersey, and tweeted on Saturday: "Thank you New Jersey! Despite the storm you came in huge numbers and cheered us on like champions. Lots of love to you all. See you soon. [sic]"
Akhil Akkineni on sunday, December 17, tweeted a selfie video in which he was seen thanking the audiences in Dallas along with Rana Daggubati. He also wrote: "Thank you very much Dallas! @RanaDaggubati. [sic]" The actors are set to meet their fans in San Jose next.
This generosity by Rana Daggubati has got some much-need attention for Hello in the country. His presence in its promotional events will definitely boost the film's collection at the US box office and help Akhil Akkineni score his first big hit in the country.
Akhil Akkineni suffered a big setback with his debut film Akhil: The Power of Jua, and Hello happens to be his second film.
This romantic action movie has been written and directed by Vikram Kumar of Manam fame, and Kalyani Priyadarshan will be seen romancing him in it.
Along with his father, producer Nagarjuna, the actor is leaving no stone unturned to make this film a blockbuster success.
