Ileana to debut in Bollywood with ‘Barfee’
Chennai: Telugu superhit Pokiri has thrown up a new actress who answers to the name of Ileana D’Cruz. That was news a couple of years ago. Cutting to the present the Pokiri star is, like most of her illustrious predecessors in the industry, is gravitating towards Bollywood.
Reports emanating from the Mecca of Indian film industry – Mumbai- say D’Cruz is all set to sail into the hot waters of Bollywood. She will be making her debut with Anurag Basu’s new movie titled “Barfee”. And hold your breath ! the lead opposite her in the movie is Ranbir Kapoor! While the role of Ranbir is that of deaf and mute lad, Ileana will be seen in a character which grows from the age of 19 to 65 through 30.
The movie could be a real launching pad for Ileana D’Cruz in Bollywood as it gives her ample scope to lay bare her acting abilities apart from flaunting her anatomy. The movie gets its name ostensibly from the muted pronounciation of Murphy – the male lead character’s name in the movie.
Another heavyweight Priyanka Chopra too has a meaty role in the movie, portraying a character of an autistic personality. The initial shooting of the film has already started at the Ranbir’s native town of Darjeeling on 14th of this month.
