Now ahead of its release, Akhil during a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, revealed he would like to star in the biopic of none other than Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

Akhil revealed that Kohli has influenced him in a lot of ways. He praised how the ace cricketer carries himself and dedicates himself to his craft and sport.

The actor added, "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."
