Not everyone is as lucky as this Goan beauty Ileana D’Cruz is. Hailing from a simple family, this girl never imagined she’d make it big in Bollywood. Only two films old, this girl has already set up a mark for herself and is determined to make it to the top.
Ileana D’Cruz started her career with a couple of advertisements. After getting noticed by noted directors of the South, Ileana was offered several roles in Telugu Films. She acted with big names of Tollywood and made her way up to the top actors of Telugu cinema. Ileana then decided to do a few Tamil films.
It was only in the year 2012 that Ileana managed to get her big Bollywood break with the film Barfi! directed by Anurag Basu. This film saw Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead roles. Ileana playyed the parallel lead in the film and boy, she did hit the Jackpot!! She received much appreciation for her beautiful looks and phenomenal acting in the film. She also won the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award for this film.
Ileana’s next film Phata Poster Nikla Hero opposite Shahid Kapoor was sadly not as good as her first one but she surely managed to grab some eyeballs. Her pretty looks and commendable acting did fetch her some good reviews.
Ileana’s journey has definitely been a good one. She is one of those fewest actors who managed to make it big not only down South but also in B Town. Great going girl!!
