Ileana made a mark on Bollywood audience with her debut movie, Barfi and her second movie there. Phata Poster Nikla Hero is gearing up for release. She is fully occupied with the promotion of the movie and in one of the media interactions, she was asked about her future in Telugu. She said, “I am what I am today due to Tollywood. I got my Bollywood break because of my work in the south. I would never leave Tollywood and very soon will be doing a film there.”
Ileana was last seen beside Allu Arjun in Julayi movie directed by Trivikram Srinivas. Towards the later half of her career, she became controversial with her tussle with NTR and her indiscipline and starry tantrums.
