Ileana is one of the hottest actresses in the Telugu film industry today. She started out with Devadasu. She was spotted by director YVS Choudary, who first noticed her in a Fair&Lovely ad commercial directed by Rakesh Roshan. After bombing the Telugu film scene with her sensuous looks and moves, the actresses’ second film too was an enormous hit – Pokkiri with Mahesh Babu.
She was recently seen in Aata with Siddarth and Munna with Prabhas. These films have not only been her trysts with stardom. She also acted with NTR Jr. in Rakhi. Leaving aside two average business films (Kedi and Khatarnak), the actress with just seven films to her credit has reached the top making of her self the producers dream. Now her eighth film will be a Trivikram Srivas film, which is untitled yet.
With all this success behind her, she has become the highest paid actress when checked last demanding 70 lakhs a film. You might think that the producers would just bypass her and go for someone who asks for less but the actress is worth every bit of the money she is paid.
Recently she made a comment that she doesn’t find herself sexy but she sees her alleged sexiness only when people look at her and talk about her all that much. Well, it seems that she has learnt atleast one of her lessons – to be humble and to take whatever come her way. Well Ileana we are sure that you have a long way to go.
Nobody lasts that long in the industry is they ask for that much per film. Recently Shreya was refused a Kamal Hassan film for asking for the same fee. The similar case with Vidya Balan when she asked for a crore for a role in Shankar Dada Zindabad. But it seems that Ileana’s trade off has paid off with producers giving her everything she wants to be her sexy self – even if she doesn’t find her self all that sexy.
