Ileana D’Cruz has got a flying start in Bollywood.Having done ultra glamorous roles in South, she was seen in a granny role narrating the Barfi story.Nonetheless it’s her acting that’s been talked about.
Bigwig celebs from Bollywood were impressed with the Goan chick’s performance and many including Amitabh Bachchan complimented her appearance in the movie.Barfi also had Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra who played characters with disabilities. It was a neatly woven triangular love story between Ranbir,Priyanka and Ileana directed by Anurag Basu. Though Ranbir stole the limelight with his brilliant act Priyanka underplayed her role well.Talking on debutant Ileana’s performance Big B aka Amitabh Bachchan said, “The lovely Ileana D’Cruz in her debut for Hindi film.Such a matured and balanced performance, many congratulations.” Top director Karan Johar congratulated her ,“Well done Ileana!!! Superb debut.” While she is basking in her Bollywood glory Ileana states that she won’t ignore Kollywood and Tollywood , as they were the industries that shaped her to be what she is today. “I have been doing movies in South for six years and there have been Hindi film offers coming my way that didn’t interest me. However the role in Barfi was very different from something I had done till date.” Ilu, we too are glad that you placed your bets right.
