Slender Beauty Ileana who is making a comeback to Tollywood with Mass Maharaja Raviteja’s Amar Akbar Anthony has completed her first schedule with the film. She almost shot for two weeks for the movie in the USA in which her major portion was canned there. She will join the team once again the next month.
Interestingly, After a success with Kick, Ravi Teja and Ileana’s combination resulted in back to back failures as their last two films Khatarnak and Devudu Chesina Manushulu bombed at the box-office. Incidentally, Devudu Chesina Manushulu is Ileana’s last film in Tollywood and since then she is trying her luck in Bollywood. So, Amar Akbar Anthony will be her comeback to Telugu Cinema.
Ravi Teja and Vaitla have earlier collaborated with Nee Kosam, Venky, and Dubai Seenu. This new project which is their fourth film together is very important as both of them have suffered massive disasters and are waiting for a big break to revive their careers. Thaman is brought in to compose music for this film. In the past, Thaman had scored music for some of Ravi Teja’s hit films like Kick, Balupu, and Mirapakay. Successful Production House, Mythri Movies Makers is bankrolling this project and Ravi Teja is banking on their history of churning out blockbusters. The team is planning to wrap up the entire shoot by September first week and will try to release the film on September 28th. The official announcement about that is awaited.
