The latest news on Ajith's forthcoming film Eagan is that Ileana, the hottest beauty of Telugu Cinema has accepted the invitation of Ajith to play lead role in the film. Directed by Raju Sundaram, the film's second schedule has been delayed due to the last minute withdrawal of Katrina Kaif, the Bollywood actress, who signed for lead lady role.
Raju had already met the actress and narrated the story as well as the importance of her role in the film. But the past bitterness with Kedi team is still preventing the actress for not signing the film immediately.
Ileana had been approached in the past to do the Tamil remake of Pokkiri with Vijay and Raju's brother Prabhu Deva was also trying to rope her for his next film. But she had politely refused the same offer. It was said that Simbu had offered her a blank cheque to do a role in Kettavan but she had not changed her decision.
But now it seems that she is in the mood of re-launching her career in Tamil with Ajith's film. But she is yet to be worked out properly to finalise the dates for this project. At present, the actress is doing a film with Pawan Kalyan and has also signed for the next project of Mahesh Babu.
Meanwhile, it is said that Ajith instructed his director to change the title of this film and go for a catchy one!
