Sanam re is a love triangle where the story starts with the teen-age love of Aakash (Pulkit Samrat) and Shruti (Yami Gautam). Though, they are not quite sure of the love they have for each other. Later, Aakash moves out of the city to build his career. It is here where the actual story starts. He falls head over heels for the hot girl in the city. It is followed by a series of realization of what love is and whom does he truly love. Watch the movie to know what Aakash finds out as a part of his realization and who actually is his lady love.

She surprises with her intensity and intensity. Read More...
