The actor made his debut in Balaji Sakthivel's critically acclaimed film Kalloori (2007) alongside Tamannaah and produced by S. Shankar.[2] The film opened to positive reviews and Akhil subsequently won a nomination for the Vijay Award for Best Debut Actor category.[3] He was next seen in Vaalmiki (2009) alongside Meera Nandan but the film opened to negative reviews, while Nandhi (2011) alongside Sanusha also released with little publicity.[4][5] In 2013, he played in the supernatural horror thriller film, Masani.[6] His following films were Rettai Vaalu (2014) and Kalkandu (2014).[7][8]
