The Amar Akbar Anthony team has steered clear the visa issues and flown down to the US for a long schedule. According to reports doing rounds, the 53-member crew will be camping in the US until September 14. During this time, some very important scenes and songs will be shot, say sources close to the film unit. We hear that the entire talkie portions of Amar Akbar Anthony would be completed during this US schedule and one song would be shot in Hyderabad soon after the return.

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.

Scheduled for release on October 5 this year, the film has Ravi Teja and Ileana D’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 after having worked together 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 further raised the expectation levels.

It may be mentioned here that the Amar Akbar Anthony team had a tough time procuring the visa for shooting in the US but eventually managed to get it after a short delay. The shooting is happening at breakneck speed to ensure that the release deadline is met.
