Gopichand says no to Ileana?
Seasoned actor Gopichand, who is doing a bigticket film with Tamil director Thiru, has reportedly declined to be paired opposite Btown actress Ileana
Seasoned actor Gopichand, who is doing a big-ticket film with Tamil director Thiru, has reportedly declined to be paired opposite B-town actress Ileana. “The makers thought that the pairing of Gopichand and Ileana would be refreshing for the movie and held discussions. But the actor and director backed out and now the team is looking for an alternative heroine,” says a source from Chennai.
Actually, the film also marks the debut of Tamil director Thiru, who made films-‘Theeradha Vilaiyattu Pillai’ and `Naan Sigappu Manithan’- in T-town. Interestingly, Gopichand and Ileana never played lovers on screen, even though, he shared screen space with other leading divas like Anuskha (Shouryam), Trisha (Sankham), Tapsee(Sahasam) and Rakul Preet Singh (Loukyam), hence, the makers felt that the combination of Gopichand-Ileana will be rocking.
“May be, the success of Ileana’s comeback film ‘Amar Akbar Antony’ can give her career a new boost in Telugu since she hasn’t been getting big offers these days,” the source adds. Actually, Ileana was supposed to do films with Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu but those films didn’t materialise for various reasons. Even though, Ravi Teja openly said that he would like to work with Ileana ‘again,’ the other big stars are not showing the same interest in the ‘Barfi’ actress.
