It is an emotional comedy drama, revolves around the life of Mr Murthy. The protagonist is a victim of rare disease, frontal lobe stroke,” Rohan told Tabloid Today.

The versatile youngster informed, that he has not published any of the two novels so far. He, however, is determined to release the works as early as possible. “My goal is to become the youngest author by surpassing Nikitha Singh, who shot to fame with her maiden work, Love@Facebook when she was 19. I am confident of achieving the feat,” he asserts.

When asked about his penchant for literature, the engineering student reasons that his mother had left a profound impact on him by engaging in writing. “My mother always creates some poetry or short tales or some articles.
