It took only two films to make a super-heroine out of the young and slim Ileana. She couldn't have asked for a better timing. Surprisingly, she said that facing failure once in a while is necessary to know one's weaknesses.
Trisha was on her way out and Nayantara was busy battling her personal problems. There was nobody else in the industry at that time and thus the films that Ileana starred in became huge hits.
Ironically, the actress said that she would love to have a flop film. When asked why she has such a strange desire, she said. "When your film succeeds, you don't get to know what your negative points are, everybody is busy appreciating your performance and gushing over your looks. So, in order to improve your performance as an actress, you really need to have a flop film once in a while."
Well, maybe she should produce one such film and learn from her mistakes...
