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.
