Rumour mills has it that the makers of Srinu Vytla directorial movie, which will star Junior NTR, were keen to cast her opposite the Brindavanam star. But the actor clearly told them that he is not keen to team up with Ileana again. He suggested to find any other top actress instead of the Goan beauty. Though there were attempts of reconciling, the Telugu actor was not happy with the idea.
Junior NTR and Ileana's had differences over many issues during the making of the film. This turned bitter after the actor reportedly asked director Meher Ramesh to cut her scenes thereby limiting her role in Shakti.
Later, Ileana shot them back by not participating on Shakti promotional activities and by bad-mouthing the project, saying that it was a bad film.
