Ileana replaces Katrina!
Tollywood actress Ileana who is considered to be the Kareena Kapoor of the South (she's also playing Kareena's role in the Tamil remake of 3 Idiots) is soon set to make her Bollywood debut.
She will be launched in Bollywood by director Anurag Basu. Basu has been hunting for an actress since quite some time and more or less his search has come to an end with Ileana.
This is the same film which Anurag Basu is directing with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. Priyanka Chopra was finalized as the female lead and Anurag Basu was finding it difficult to cast the second female lead. Katrina Kaif was offered the role but she refused to play second fiddle to Priyanka Chopra. Since then the film has constantly been in casting problems. Earlier titled Silence, the film is currently called Barfi.
Ileana shot to fame with Ravi Teja's Kick. She is presently working on Nenu Naa Rakshasi with Rana Daggubati and Shakti with Junior NTR other than working on 3 Idiots remake.
