The shooting of Ravi Teja starrer Amar Akbar Anthony is currently progressing in New York, United States, and will soon be wrapped up. In the meantime, its makers have released the first look poster much to the delight of the fans. From the first look, it can be easily gathered that Ravi Teja will be appearing in three different get-ups, which will be a treat for his fans.
The story of the film is written jointly by Srinu Vaitla and Vamsi Rajesh Kondaveeti while the former has wielded the megaphone to direct the venture. Amar Akbar Anthony is bankrolled by Naveen Yerneni, Y. Ravi Shankar, Mohan Cherukuri (CVM) and Praveen Marpuri under the banner of Mythrie Movie Makers.
The shooting of this film is currently happening in the US and the team is expected to return after completing a major schedule. Scheduled for release on October 5 this year, the film has Ravi Teja and Ileana Dâ€™Cruz playing the lead pair. The supporting cast includes Sunil, Laya, Abhimanyu Singh, Vikramjeet Virk, Sayaji Shinde, Ravi Prakash, Rajveer Ankur Singh, Tarun Arora, Adithya Menon, Srinivasa Reddy and Vennela Kishore. The technical crew of Amar Akbar Anthony includes S Thaman for music, Venkat C Dileep for cinematography and MR Varma for editing.
Director Srinu Vaitla and hero Ravi Teja have a good track record together having worked in three films - Nee Kosam (1999), Venky (2004) and Dubai Seenu (2007). They are teaming up for the fourth time after more than a decade which has raised the expectation levels.
The filmâ€™s shooting in the US will be wrapped up by next month as the filmmakers have already set its release date on October 5. Reports are that the talkie portions and songs would be canned there except one song which will be filmed in Hyderabad after the teamâ€™s return.
With the director in need of a big hit, his fans hope Amar Akbar Anthony holds the key for it, considering the good track record he has with Ravi Teja.
