It’s been six years since the much-loved actress Ileana D’Cruz featured in a Tollywood film. And she has been considering making her comeback for a long time. Now, the right opportunity seems to have finally arrived. She will reunite with her Tollywood co-star Ravi Teja in Sreenu Vaitla’s Amar Akbar Anthony.
Although Anu Emmanuel was originally signed on to be the film’s heroine, she had to back out due to date issues.

The film is produced by Mythri Movie Makers, who seem to be on a roll with three consecutive hits, the latest one being Rangasthalam. Ileana is extremely excited about making her comeback in Tollywood and it seems that she really liked her part in this film. It is also the perfect opportunity for her since she will be working with her co-star and close friend Ravi Teja, who will be playing a triple role in the film.
Just a few weeks ago she hinted at the comeback as fans were celebrating 9 years since the release of the Telugu film Kick starring her and Ravi Teja. The actress took to Twitter and wrote:

Ravi and Ileana had also worked together in 2012 Telugu film Devudu Chesina Manushulu, directed by Puri Jagannadh which was also her last Telugu outing. Now, Ileana’s reunion with Ravi Teja will be in director Sreenu Vaitla’s upcoming film Amar Akbar Anthony.
