Many know well how superstar Rajini openly admitted of his wish
to pair with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the numero uno among Indian
In the same way his close follower Vijay also expressed his wish
to act with Ileana, the young beauty of the South. He has tried to
cast her even in his block buster Pokiri, but for some reasons it
did not happen.
Finally, it looks like it is happening. She is almost certain to
be his heroine in AVM Balasubramaniyam's new film
Vettaikkaran to be directed by debutant Babu Sivan, a
former assistant of Dharani.
Ileana has done just one film in Tamil KD with Ravi
Krishna which bombed. After this unforgettable experience she
carefully avoided Tamil offers. In Telugu she is presently getting
about Rs.1.25 crores.
Earlier it was said that Nayantara would pair with Vijay in
Vettaikkaran. But now, according to the sources, the actor
replaced Nayan with Ileana and is ready to offer even few more
lakhs than what she is getting in Telugu for this project.
