The love and energy you all give me is the reason I work and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. I will come back stronger for all those who believe in me. Yours faithfully Akhil Akkineni."

A day after the film’s release, Akhil’s mother Amala Akkineni took to her Instagram and reacted to people who rejected her son’s film. She wrote, “I understand that trolling comes from a deeper insecurity and need for achievement. I watched Agent yesterday and honestly enjoyed the film. While it has its flaws, if you watch it with an open mind, you will be amazed . The hall I watched it at was packed, half of the audience were ladies, mothers and grandmothers along with their husbands and sons! . There were screams when the action happened. And I am sure the next one will be bigger and better.”

Directed by Surender Reddy, Agent is a spy thriller which also starred Malayalam actor Mammootty and Dino Morea in key roles. The film opened to disastrous reports on release day. Globally, it collected just Rs. 7 crore on the first day. Recently, the film’s producer Anil Sunkara took to Twitter to share a note on the failure of the film.
