She was spotted in Pune by her mother’s colleague who advised Ileana to pursue a career in modeling because she had a vibrant smile. Ileana was forced into her first portfolio by her mom after the mother-daughter duo had met Marc Robinson. She walked quite a few ramps and fashion shows which earned her an opportunity to shoot her second portfolio.
Her portfolio landed her the opportunity to endorse multiple brands like Electrolux, Emami, and Fair & Lovely. Rakesh Roshan’s directional venture of Fair & Lovely got much-needed recognition to the beautiful actress. She was even offered many films from several industries in Mumbai.

The Big-Screen Success

It was a major commercial success, and Ileana’s performance in the movie was well received. She was highly praised for her immaculate figure and super-hot features. She won her first Filmfare for the movie. Just immediately, she featured in another Telugu film titled Pokiri.
The fine-looking actress made her Tamil film debut with Kedi. In the same year, she featured in Khatarnak opposite Ravi Teja.

She continued to reign supreme over the South Indian movie industries with stellar performances in films like Aata, Jalsa, Kick, Nanban, Neenu Na Rakshasi, July, and Devidu Chesina. She has been by far the highest paid actress in the South Indian Film Industry.
The Bollywood Break
Ileana made her startling Bollywood Debut with Barfi. She shared the screen with superstars like Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor. Anurag Kashyap’s directorial Barfi amazed its audiences with its innocence. It was a huge commercial and critical success. Ileana was awarded her first Filmfare in the Bollywood for her commendable performance in the movie.
She then starred opposite Shahid Kapoor in Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Phata Poster Nikla Hero. Though its songs went quite famous with the people, the film failed to make a mark. It was an average grosser and received mixed reviews from the critics. She did a couple of films in the subsequent years. Main Tera Hero opposite Varun Dhawan and Happy Ending opposite Saif Ali Khan were huge flops. She was also seen sharing the screen with Akshay Kumar in Rustom. The gorgeous Goan-born actress has a few films line up and we hope that she amazes us with better performances.
