Anu Emmanuel was to romance Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja in Amar Akbar Anthony directed by Srinu Vaitla. She was present at the movie launch and even shot one day for the film. But she backed off the project citing dates issues. Now the makers are in search of a replacement and names like Shruti Haasan and Ileana are doing rounds.
Interestingly, Ravi Teja and Ileana’s combination is failure one as both their previous movies 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. Will Ravi Teja invite her back keeping away all the bad sentiments?
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.
