I get what I deserve, claims Ileana

Ileana Interview

Actress Ileana has said that she only demands and gets from the producers and directors of her film what she duly deserves as her fee to star in their films. The actress, who possesses an enviable hour-glass figure, is one of the frontline heroines in the Tollywood along with the lanky Anushka.

Not many are aware that Ileana’s tryst with films actually started with the Tamil film ‘Kedi’ opposite Ravikrishna more than five years back. The film, incidentally, had Tamannaah playing a ‘negative’ role. ‘Kedi’ wasn’t a rousing success at the box-office. While Tamannaah stayed back in Kollywood, Ileana moved to Tollywood to try her luck and succeeded enormously.

After many years, Ileana is back in Kollywood and is pairing up opposite Vijay in Shankar’sNanban’. The multi-starrer film, which has the likes of Jiiva, Srikanth, SJ Suriyah and Anuya in its cast, is the Tamil remake of the Bollywood super-hit film ‘3 Idiots’ which had Aamir Khan playing the lead role with Madhavan and Sharman Joshi.

Goan girl Ileana would soon be debuting in Bolywood with a Hindi film titled ‘Barfee’ directed by noted director Anurag Kashyap. Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra are also in the film. Commenting on her fee-demand, Ileana said “I am aware of the many rumours floating out there about me getting paid Re.1 crore per film and ‘reducing’ my fee to bag the ‘Hindi film’ offer.

“I would neither deny not confirm these rumours; let them be rumours. Irrespective of whatever I might say, things would still be written about me. To be frank, I earnestly fee that I am being paid what I well and truly deserve. Many a time, I have been asked whether I’d be giving priority only to Hindi films. Acting is my profession and as such, I don’t unduly bother about the language.

“It feels so nice to be back in Kollywood. I saw the original version many times to ensure that I don’t imitate Kareena Kapoor in any way,” concludes Ileana.

    I’ Think you are jealous. Being a girl/aunty U can’t see the plus points of Ileana. She is a top-notch and a classy item girl not like your Above listed Anushka, Amala paul, Etc. Anushka is loosely packed and somewhat old. I think Ileana and Genelia are toppers, just watch her(Ileana) Curves and correct fitted structures in songs. She has the potential and worth for what she demands and gets.

    Moreover director Shankar is genius and a clever fellow in cine Industry, There is no panjam for heroines, but Shankar knows whom to select and he will always select the Best of Best.

    Oru Thamil padathla nadichrintha; recall panna mudyala; padam sumar; but illeana looked refreshing in it; aana ivunglukaagave padam paarka poralavuku ivunga intelligent illa; I mean Coffee with Anu Anu maathri, ean Thrisha kuda got some girly intelligence (not redoubtable intelligence like Anu Hassan). Dhanush padaom nanna irkarathu eanna he always brings that extra something with his intelligence unlike say Srikant who is smart but not intelliegent. I think Illeana ‘I deserve’ nu solrathu folly or lieing.
