Actor Akhil Akkineni on Monday took to Twitter to share a glimpse of his transformed physique for his upcoming Telugu film Agent. Hailing his transformation, fans said his hard work won't fail.

Akhil revealed that it took him exactly one year to complete his transformation.

“365 days back, I was challenged by @DirSurender to transform myself mentally and physically. Sir, the fire you have ignited in me will burn furiously throughout this film. I promise you that (sic).”

His fans were full of praise for the actor. One fan complimented him and wrote: "Well !! That’s really a huge transformation. Good luck to your movie." Another said: "Nee hardwork ki nee dedication ki box office baddalu ippovali esari (So much hardwork, so much dedication will not go waste at the box office)."
