Vastavam web: Seasoned actor Gopichand, who is doing a big-ticket film with Tamil director Thiru, has reportedly declined to be paired opposite B-town actress Ileana. “The makers thought that the pairing of Gopichand and Ileana would be refreshing for the movie and held discussions. But the actor and director backed out and now the team is looking for an alternative heroine,” says a source from Chennai.
“May be, the success of Ileana’s comeback film ‘Amar Akbar Antony’ can give her career a new boost in Telugu since she hasn’t been getting big offers these days,” the source adds. Actually, Ileana was supposed to do films with Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu but those films didn’t materialise for various reasons.
