Jennifer Lopez's Hidden Hills home is a 17,000-square-foot property she purchased with ex-husband Marc Anthony in 2010. This mansion boasts of luxe upgrades like a renovated kitchen, a revamped master bedroom, a pool with a spa, a recording studio, a gym, a 20-seater movie theater, a game room, a bar and a guest suite. It will be one of the attractions of Amar Akbar Antony.

Sreenu Vaitla and Ravi Teja have worked together in three films — Nee Kosam, Venky and Dubai Seenu — and have teamed for the fourth time in Amar Akbar Antony, which is being touted as a romantic action film.

The mass maharaja will be seen romancing Anu Emmanuel in it. The director's daughter launched the movie by clapping the board at the opening ceremony held March 7.
