Akhila in a recent interview to Times of India said she no qualms in being the second heroine "I will take up a film if I am convinced about my character and so, it doesn't matter how many people are in it." Akhila who is getting more Tamil offers concluded stating "I don't mean to sound pompous, but a lot of people say I resemble Nayanthara. Personally, I love her work and she is one actress I draw inspiration from. I want to be like her."
