Illeana comeback to Tollywood

Bollywood actress Illeana D'Cruz, who is seen more often these days in Hyderabad, we
hear, is keen on making a comeback to Tollywood, which launched her showbiz career. Her managers have spread the word that the actress is "open" to acting in Telugu movies provided the scripts justify her image in the story appropriately.

The actress, who made a grand debut in Bollywood through Barfi, did not find the going smooth. With a new actress getting launched almost every month in Bollywood, the competition is intense even for successful actresses of Hindi cinemas. The actress was quick in grabbing four Hindi movies following the stupendous success of Barfi, but those projects did not help her in improving her career.

Illeana, who was last seen in Happy Ending (2014), did not have a single release so far in Bollywood in 2015. She will be next seen in superstar Shah Rukh Khan's Fan, which is scheduled for release in mid-2016. Till then, Illeana does not have any project in Hindi. Though the actress went on record recently in front of the media that she is on a "break" and that she will return to the silver screen shortly, in reality, it is said that she is not liking the scripts being offered to her in Bollywood.

The actress' last Telugu movie was Devudu Chesina Manushulu (2012) before she shifted to Bollywood. There was a time when her Telugu managers even alleged that Illeana had stopped answering their phone calls after making an impactful debut in Hindi movies. But now she seems to have buried the differences from the past with her managers pitching her aggressively in Telugu projects.

Incidentally, there is a huge vacuum for established actresses in Telugu movies. While the likes of Samantha Prabhu, Anushka Shetty, Kajal Agarwal and Tamannaah have become selective in their Telugu projects, the second rung of heroines like Rakul Preet Singh, Rashi Khanna, and Regina Cassandra are filling up the vacant space.

"If Illeana gives her nod for Telugu movies, producers will make a beeline to sign her because she still enjoys tremendous popularity in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. But she is very clear that her presence in the movie should justify her image," a leading casting director from Hyderabad, said.

Unlike other south actresses, who entered Bollywood without a plan b, Illeana has been quick to make her presence felt in Hyderabad. Let us wait and watch which producer gets to sign her first.
