Puri Jagannadh's son Akash turns 'Romantic'
The actor's next film is by debutant director Anil Paduri and the story and screenplay is written by Puri Jagannadh
Director Puri Jagannadh's son Akash has joined hands with debutant director Anil Paduri for a different love story, titled Romantic. The film, which has story and screenplay by Puri Jagannadh, was launched today, and veteran actors Rama Prabha and Kalyan Ram graced the launch.
"It's a beautiful, yet modern-day love story blended with all the commercial elements. Akash will be seen in a new avatar. The principal shooting has begun in Hyderabad. The female lead and other cast and crew are yet to be finalised," read a statement from the filmmakers.
Produced jointly by Charmme Kaur and Puri Jagannadh, the film will have a newcomer as the leading lady. Akash’s last film, Mehbooba, a cross-border love story, didn't fare well, and the actor is hoping to bounce back with Romantic, the content and script of which he feels is quite unique.
