Ileana pocketed a solid paycheck for AAA


Actress Ileana, who was away from limelight due to her Bollywood commitments, returned to Tollywood with Sreenu Vaitla’s latest offering Amar Akbar Anthony. Despite taking a brief break, she managed to grab the attention of Telugu audience with her glamorous avatar in teasers and trailers of AAA.

It is learnt that Ileana pocketed around 1.5 Crores remuneration to share screen space with Ravi Teja in this film. Her remuneration is on par with star heroines who are currently ruling on the roost in South India. Sources say that Sreenu Vaitla wanted to cast Ileana and approached her with the script. Though she was not interested to return to Tollywood, Mythri Movie Makers have offered her a hefty remuneration and cleared all her demands to make her sign the project. Reportedly, the production house has spent around 25 lakhs for her expenses while working for this project.

As she put on awkward weight, the team was forced to use CG for majority of her scenes to make her appear slimmer on screen. With AAA opening to disaster reports, Ileana might find it difficult to bag crazy offers in Tollywood from here on.
