She is now pairing up with NTR for his latest film to be directed by VV Vinayak. Kodali Naani and Vallabhaneni Vamsi are the producers. VV Vinayak made films like Sambha and Aadi with NTR in the past.
Also, we have learnt that Ileana will not be on board the animated Rajini starrer Sultan. She turned down the offer made by Soundarya Rajnikanth, the head of Ocher Studios, citing reasons that may have been connected to remuneration, say insiders. She may have also felt that she would not have much to do in a Rajini movie. Inside sources feel that Ileana can take a leaf out of the books of all the actresses who worked with Rajinikanth as they have all gone on to become major stars. Even a yesteryears heroine, Meena, has got plenty of plum offers after her role in Kuselan/Kathanayakudu.
