Ileana is undoubtedly the number one heroine in the Telugu film industry as she charges more than Rs 1.5 crores per film. Though she is still chased by top directors and heroes for their films, flops continue to haunt her. Last year, she had flops with Rechchipo and Saleem and this year Shakti turned out to be another disaster in her career.
Containing the rate of flops has to be her mission if she has to retain her numero uno position. She has pinned all hopes on her forthcoming films - Puri Jagannadh`s Nenu Naa Rakshasi, releasing on April 29, and Shankar`s Tamil film, Nanban, releasing in July/August.
