Tollywood actress Ileana D’Cruz, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Anurag Basu’s movie ‘Barfi’ that stars Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra and will release on September 14, has signed her second movie in Bollywood.
The actress has been cast opposite Shahid Kapoor in Rajkumar Santoshi’s upcoming movie ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’.
“We have signed Ileana for our film. She is perfect for the role. She is a brilliant actress. We have seen her work down south,” confirmed producer Ramesh Taurani to PTI.
The producer though refused to divulge any further details.
“I can't talk about the role that Ileana and Shahid will be playing in the film,” he said.
Previously Shahid Kapoor had admitted to be in talks with Rajkumar Santoshi about the movie but refused to confirm whether he had signed on the dotted line. Later Ramesh Taurani had revealed that Shahid Kapoor had in fact given his nod to the movie.
The movie is all set to go on floors in November.
