Ileana D’Cruz bags Barjatya’s next, opposite Salman Khan

Just recently we had reported that Ileana D’Cruz wished to work with the three Khans. And guess what? The pretty actress is said to have bagged a meaty role with one of the Khan’s, who is none other than Salman. Yes! You hear it right. The Bollywood newbie will be seen opposite Salman Khan in director Sooraj Barjatya’s next film.

Not many know that Ileana was Prabhu Deva’s first choice for the 2009 film ‘Wanted’, which starred Salman Khan in the lead. Back then, apparently the actress wasn’t ready for Bollywood film and hence she turned it down, and eventually the role went to Ayesha Takia.

Now, after almost 4 years, Ileana D’Cruz is finally set to romance the blockbuster Khan.

Ileana tells a Hindi newspaper, “Yes, I will be seen opposite Salman Khan in Sooraj Barjatya’s upcoming film. He (Barjatya) is directing this film eight years after Vivah, and I am glad that he’s cast me opposite Salman.”

It is learnt that Salman Khan will be seen in a double role and the film is a family entertainer.

Ileana, who made her debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor in the oscar nominated flick Barfi! and won acclodes for her stellar performance, will next be seen opposite Shahid Kapoor in Phata Poster Nikhla Hero.

As for Salman Khan, This would be the actor-director’s fourth project together.
