en Bollywood News Ileana D’Cruz clarifies the ‘misconception’ about her choosing Bollywood films over South films; says, “It wasn’t meant to be a shift”

Ileana D’Cruz recently was seen in the film Do Aur Do Pyaar co-starring Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, and Sendhil Ramamurthy.

Ileana D’Cruz, who is enjoying motherhood, recently had two back-to-back releases in Bollywood which included Tera Kya Hoga Lovely and Do Aur Do Pyaar. While both of them were interesting films with ample of comedy, her fans down South are disappointed about not being able to see her in films of that region. In a recent interaction, the actress opened up about how her debut in Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra Jonas starrer Barfi created misconceptions about her not wanting to feature in South films, which impacted the offers she had from the South industry.

The actress revealed how these offers decreased over time as people started assuming that she is not interested in doing South films. She told India Today, "It wasn't meant to be a shift. It was me doing a Hindi film because I genuinely loved Barfi as a story.” She further explained her decision of doing the Anurag Basu directorial and added, “I thought that it was an unusual film, and I didn't really see myself doing anything like that or having something like that come my way ever again. It was a one-off and I thought it would be stupid to give it up. It wasn't like ‘Oh, now I am moving my base to Bollywood, and I am never going to do a South Indian film again’."

"But I feel somewhere when I signed up to do Barfi, there was this weird misconception that 'she's moving to Bollywood now. She's not going to be interested in doing South films.' The offers kind of just dwindled away. I didn't really get many offers at all but yes, it's true that I did become more selective about the work I want to do after moving to Bollywood," she shared.

Ileana D’Cruz featured in the last South film in 2012 in Devudu Chesina Manushulu. As for her other Bollywood films, she last featured in Do Aur Do Pyaar, an urban rom com talking about the complexity of marriage which released on April 19. It featured Ileana alongside Pratik Gandhi, with Vidya Balan and Sendhil Ramamurthy playing key roles.
