Puri Jagannath’s son Akash Puri made his full-fledged debut as a hero last year with the film Mehabooba.
After having a moderate run as a child artist with films like Andhra Pori and a few short films, Akash Puri’s first film as a hero, Mahbooba, failed to create a sensation at the box office. Akash Puri is quite a sensation on social media and has several videos of his on Youtube. He has also assisted his father in a few films as well.
However, Puri Jagannath has now officially announced his son’s next venture which has been titled “Romantic”.
The film’s story and screenplay will be helmed by Puri Jagannath while the film will be directed by debutant Anil Paduri.
“Romantic” will be produced by both Puri Jagannath and Charmee on the Puri Jagannadh Touring Talkies and Puri Connects banners.
The female lead opposite Akash Puri has not been announced yet. It has been reported that the makers of this film are on the lookout for a suitable female lead.
