The director believes that shooting in Goa brings him luck.

Puri Jagannath is currently shooting for his son Akash’s film Romantic in Goa — a place that the director considers lucky. Interestingly, he used to favour Bangkok earlier for most of his film shoots, but following the super success of iSmart Shankar which was shot in Goa, he feels that it is a lucky place for him.

While Akash is playing the lead opposite Ketika Sharma, Puri has written the story, dialogues and screenplay for the film while his associate, Anil Paduri will make his directorial debut. Apparently, senior actress Ramya Krishnan has also joined the shoot in Goa.

“There are some action sequences, major scenes and a couple of songs planned in this lengthy schedule,” says a source, adding that the director is hopeful that some of his luck will rub off on his son too.
