It was earlier reported that Ravi Teja's Amar Akbar Anthony will have three female leads. Anu Emmanuel, who was last seen in Allu Arjun's Naa Peru Surya, was one of the first one to sign the mass flick which will see Ravi Teja donning triple role.

However, it has now been revealed that Anu Emmanuel has backed out of the project citing date issues. Mythri Movie Makers, who is producing this big-budget film, took to Twitter to clear the air about Anu Emmanuel's decision.

They wrote, "Due to non availability of dates for our long USA schedule of 50 days, Anu Emmanuel will not be working in our film #AmarAkbarAnthony. We are giving this clarification since there are speculations in some sections of media that she has been replaced due to various other reasons which are not true. #AmarAkbarAnthony (sic)"

Now, it has been reported that Tollywood and Bollywood actress Ileana D'Cruz has been signed in as Anu Emmanuel's replacement. It has been a while since Ileana did a Telugu flick. Ileana and Ravi Teja had earlier shared screen space in Kick, 9 years ago.

Recently, we had also reported that Shruti Haasan has been brought on board to romance Ravi Teja in the film, directed by Srinu Vaitla.
