Recently Telugu movie Agent starring Akhil Akkineni, Mammooty, Dino Morea among others became a talking point not for the content it delivered, but for the producer's bold step of coming forward and accepting the failure of the film. Agent’s producer Anil Sunkara of AK Entertainment sent out a tweet on May 1, 2023, 3 days after the film's wide release on April 28. Shocking the film industry and its followers, Anil openly admitted starting the project without a bound script, and continuing with several other advertant and inadvertant mistakes.
We have to take the entire blame for #Agent. Though we know its an uphill task, we thought of conquering but failed to do so as we did a blunder starting the project without a bound script & innumerable issues including covid followed. We don't want to give any excuses but learn…— Anil Sunkara (@AnilSunkara1) May 1, 2023
