Hyderabad, Oct 6: Ileana has been contacting one and all for film offers prior to her Bollywood debut Barfi in the industry. Disowned by Tollywood after her comments on all powerful Young Tiger NTR's Shakti film, she for two years went into oblivion. She returned back to South with Shankar's bilingual 'Snehitulu' and then hit Tollywood with 'Devudu Chesina Manushulu' and 'Julayi'. However movie lovers were not impressed with her new ultra slim look and when everything looked bleak all that changed post Barfi.
With the film getting shortlisted as Indian entry to Oscars, film makers are running after her with offers and she is even planning to leave Power Star Pawan Kalyan's starrer with Trivikram Srinivas. Ileana's close aide says, "She almost signed a film with Pawan Kalyan which would be directed by Trivikram Srinivas, but now she has kept it on hold. She says that she wants to do only exciting films in Tollywood." This shows her importance to Tollywood.
Ileana has got a new film in Bollywood in which she will be romancing Shahid Kapoor. It is Ramesh Taurani`s film and he has signed Shahid and Ileana for his film, Phata Poster Nikla Hero. Rajkumar Santhoshi will be directing this film.
