Mumbai: Yes, you read it right! South sensation Ileana D'Cruz, who
is currently making her baby steps into Bollywood, was once offered
a role opposite to Salman Khan in the film Wanted.
But, Ileana turned down the offer back then.
"Yes, I was approached for the remake of Pokiri in
Tamil and Hindi. I did Pokiri in Telugu, which did a huge
business. I didn't take the offer of Pokiri in Hindi,
which was titled Wanted, as I felt I was not prepared
enough to enter Bollywood," she told IANS.
"It was not that I didn't want to do the film, it's just that I
didn't want to do it half-heartedly. I missed an opportunity to
work with Salman Khan in Wanted. But no regret as I feel
Barfi! is the perfect launch for me. But I am really happy
that 'Wanted' did well. I would love to work with Salman Khan in
the near future," she added. Well, we hope Ileana gets another
golden opportunity to romance the tiger soon.
