After Six Years, Ileana D’Cruz To Make Her Telugu Comeback Opposite Ravi Teja In Amar Akbar Anthony!

Ileana D’Cruz started her acting career with Telugu film Devadasu and went on to feature in several blockbuster films. Some of the biggest hits of Ileana include Pokkiri, Kick, and Jalsa to name a few. After finding success in Tollywood, she made her Bollywood debut with Ranbir Kapoor starrer Barfi in 2012.

Her last Telugu film was with her Kick co-star Ravi Teja in Devudu Chesina Manushulu directed by Puri Jagannadh in 2012. Now, after a long six-year gap, she is all set to make her Telugu comeback with Ravi Teja’s Amar Akbar Anthony directed by Sreenu Vaitla. Amar Akbar Anthony will mark Ileana’s third collaboration with Teja.


Amar Akbar Anthony is an upcoming Telugu language action comedy film directed by Srinu Vaitla and produced by Mythri Movie Makers. Ravi Teja will play a triple role in the movie. Ileana was signed for the movie after Anu Emmanuel opted out due to scheduling conflicts. A source was quoted saying to Firstpost, “Yes, we have signed Ileana for the project. But she has not been signed as a replacement for Anu. Contrary to rumours, Anu had to leave the project as she couldn’t set aside dates for the 50-day US schedule. Hence, we had to go ahead and sign Ileana who is thrilled to be part of the project. She will join the sets from the second schedule in June”

The first schedule of the movie has already been completed in Detroit, USA. The buzz in the industry is that the whole movie will be shot in the USA. Currently, Ravi Teja has taken a break to promote his latest film Nela Ticket releasing on 25th May 2018.
