Romantic is said to be a new-age love story and we hear Akash is playing the role of struggling slum-dweller in the movie. What's interesting is also the fact that Akash has undergone a physical transformation for his role and that's quite evident from whatever little we have seen of the film till now.
Akash made his mark in the acting world as a child artist and then he made his debut as lead hero with Raj Madiraju's directional movie Andhra Pori. As for Ketika Sharma, she is an internet sensation who is quite popular on social media sites like Instagram and Snapchat. And she's finally making her acting debut with Romantic.
