Every successful star goes through a lean patch now and then and every unsuccessful star does hit a purple patch some times. It’s an unwritten rule in the entertainment industry and nobody is an exception to this rule. Tollywood’s leading actress Ileana D’Cruz appears to be going through such a lean phase at present in her career.
Unfortunately, her last few films in Telugu haven’t quite done as well as expected at the box-office. This has reportedly forced the actress, one of the very few actress who boast an ‘hourglass’ figure, to reduce her fee for her successive films. The slim and svelte actress still remains on top but some failures have threatened her grip on the ‘top slot’ in Telugu films.
One of the very few actresses down South who get paid Re.1 crore or more for a film, Ileana has reportedly reduced her fee for some of her films on floor and for the films she has taken up in recent times. The fall-out of the failure of her past few films is that she hasn’t been getting that many offers of late. The actress had been avoiding Tamil films for a long time before agreeing to play the lead role in Shankar’s ‘Nanban’ opposite Vijay.
