A leading daily has published that Junior NTR and Ileana D'Cruz were not seeing eye to eye during Shakti's shoot. In fact, she always used to be in her van and was coming out only when the shot was ready. The reason behind it is their ego clash. It is said that they were in fights on more than a few occasions.
Shakti, which was released on April 1, failed miserably at the box-office. The critics slammed their poor on-screen chemistry. Later, Ileana came out and pointed her finger at the director for etching her character in the film in a poor manner. She also defended her decision to stay away from the movie's promotion, as she was not happy with the overall outcome of the film.
Report claims that the relationship between NTR and Ileana was strained in 2006 during Rakhi's shoot. Since then they avoided each other. Though the actress was not keen to act with him again, the hefty amount offered by producer C Ashwini Dutt made her to change her mind and to act in Shakti.
Now that Ileana has openly criticized Shakti, Junior NTR and Nandamuri camp have decided to keep her out of their films and are telling the same to their friends in the industry.
We have often heard about cat fights between two actresses in a film. But it's rather surprising to hear that a male lead and his female counterpart hated each other and still acted together in a film. Yes, it is none other than Junior NTR and Ileana D Cruz, who are seen together in the recent release Shakti.
