In this last schedule of the film, important scenes besides the song will also be shot and this is going to be a wrap for the film. These scenes have an integral part in the film and it will have lead actor Akhil, Nidhhi Agerwal and others.

Produced by BVSN Prasad under his banner Sri Venkateswara Cine Charitra, the film is slated for release on January 25. SS Thaman is composing the music for the film, while George C Williams is wielding the camera.

Mr Majnu is touted to be a romantic love story and going by the teaser, it is understood that Akhil plays a playboy in the film. He looks really handsome and yeah, he is definitely a heartthrob.
