Tollywood actor Akhil Akkineni’s love for sports is famous. In a recent interview he was asked which sports person he would like to play on screen if given an opportunity. Without hesitation he said Virat Kohli.
“So, here and there a few biopics come in, but I feel strongly that it’s easy to say that lets just make a sports-oriented film, we can just pick up cricket, horse riding, etc and can do it. But unless the story is that good, the sport will not be highlighted, and I have still not found that as yet. Virat Kohli. I think that would be a journey of passion, fire and what dedication he has. In fact, he has influenced me in a lot of ways, the way he carries himself, and dedicates himself to his craft and sport. It’s incredible to see someone so dedicated, and the passion to be number one. So maybe a story on him someday would be great ”.
