Director Puri Jagannadh is directing his son Puri Akash in a film titled Mehbooba which is said to be a romantic saga between two people in Kashmir. Mehbooba has an Indo-Pakistan border theme to it which was revealed in the teaser which was released a while ago. The makers have now released the theatrical trailer of Mehbooba and the story of the film seems to be an intense romantic story amidst all the chaos in the border between India and Pakistan. Puri Akash seems to have gotten better in terms of screen presence and ease in front of the camera and looks impressive in his role in whatever the trailer revealed. Neha Shetty will be making her debut in Telugu cinema with Mehbooba and the young actor too seems convincing. One can expect a lot of action in Mehbooba since the story is set in the backdrop of Indian and Pakistan border and the trailer does reveal few action sequences. Watch the trailer of Mehbooba starring Puri Akash and Neha Shetty here:
Puri Jagannadh had recently said that he did Mehbooba with his son Aakash because he felt that he has a fire for cinema and that drove him to do that. “After finishing my Mehbooba script, I realized that I am doing a highly intense and a passionate love story for the first time ever which is completely out of my repertoire of ideas. It is a soulful love story in the backdrop of 1971 Indo-Pak war. Irrespective of the blood relation I share with Akash Puri, it’s his love and fire towards cinema that’s making me do this film with him. A Manglorean girl named Neha Shetty will be playing the female lead. I am very happy that Sandeep Chowta is providing the music for this film,” Puri Jagannadh had said. Sandeep Choqta will be composing the music for Mehbooba while the camera is handled by Vishnu Sarma.
