Anu Emmanuel had sent social media buzzing after she tweeted about walking out of the project. Unfortunately, the actress can’t be a part of the film due to date clash between Amar Akbar Anthony and another film, Sailaja Reddy Alludu.
“Unfortunately I won’t be a part of #AmarAkbarAnthony due to date clash between #SailajaReddyAlludu. I wish the team of #AmarAkbarAnthony all the best (sic),” the actress had posted on Twitter.
