Two years ago, Bollywood hardly knows about her. Her talent or the stardom was confined to southern circuit mainly to Tollwood. when film director announced her name opposite Ranbir Kapoor for the film ‘Barfi’, trade pandits ridiculed his selection and wrote her off. Yet, she proved every one wrong with her scintillating performance and got critical acclaim, applause and adulation eual to Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
But, unfortunately Barfee didn’t give her enough boost to her career. There were no big offers on her way and the movie with Shahid Kapoor ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’ bombed at the box office.
Determined Ileana not willing to give up like other South actresses Asin, Kajal , Trisha or Tamannah. She is carefully planning her career in Bollywood not bothering about her diminishing chances in South.
Did Ileana is scare about the fate of South actors and actress including Mega Power Star Ram Charan in Bollywood?
” Ram Charan is a huge star and he has a massive fan-following. People worship him! Zanjeer may have come and gone, but Charan’s stardom hasn’t changed and I really don’t think it will” Ileana praised Ram Charan with a Bollywood reporter.
Ileana is now awaiting the release of ‘Main Tera Hero’ opposite Varun Dhawan.
