It’s rumoured that Vijay has been trying to tempt Ileana away from Tollywood to appear in his next Kollywood epic, Vettaikaaran but has so far failed. Asin has also been rumoured for this role. The film has two heroines in the script so if they both make it, it would be a tremendous pairing.
Mumbai-born Ileana currently lives in Goa and has appeared in such movies as Pokiri, Jalsa and Rape. How does she rate herself as an actress? “I am working hard and I am improving with every film, I could say, but I think others should tell you that, and not myself,” she laughs. Leana will also be teaming up with Vishnu for the romantic movie Salaam. “I am happy to be working with a talented director and also feel privileged to team up with Ileana” said Vishnu.
Asin, meanwhile, of course was in the big hit earlier this year Dasavatharam and is currently waiting for the release of Aamir Khan’s latest Ghajini, the remake of the Tamil version of the same name for which she won the Best Tamil Actress Award. Next on her list is Salman Khan’s London Dreams, which has already been sold for distribution for an incredible 120cr.
