Akkineni Akhil’s big budget spy thriller ‘Agent’ is one of the most awaited releases this summer. The makers have already announced that the movie will have a pan-Indian released in multiple languages on 28th April. Though there is more than a month left for the release, many feel that there is not a lot of buzz on this movie for some reason.
Inside sources claim that all is not well between ‘Agent’ director Surender Reddy and its producer Anil Sunkara. Reports emerged that the producer is not happy with the stylish director crossing the budget limits and costing him heavily. Grapevine suggests that the estimated budget for this movie is 40 crores and Surender Reddy made him spend around 70 crores. It has to be noted that Surender Reddy is the co-producer of this movie and he is quite confident on the movie’s output.
After having differences for a few months, they reportedly patched up things and are working day and night to finish the movie on time. Rumours suggest that the team are yet to wrap up the shooting and focus on post-production. On top of that there are promotions and sources claim that Akhil is insisting on starting the promotions as early as possible in order to raise the buzz. Let us wait and see how things shape up in the next couple of days.
