Ileana D'Cruz (born 01 novemeber 1982[1][2] in Mumbai [3]) is an Indian film actress.

She made her feature film debut through Y.V.S. Chowdhary's Telugu-language film Devadasu opposite newcomer, Ram, but has also done a Tamil film Kedi. She has emerged one of the most successful actresses in the Telugu film industry, having appeared in several blockbusters like Devadasu, Pokiri, Jalsa and Kick.


Early life

Ileana was born in Mumbai, India of Goan parentage Ronaldo Leo, and Sameera. Her parents named her name after Ileana Cosânzeana (In the myth, she is a beautiful princess who is kidnapped by the Zmeu, who locks her in his castle and waits for her to give in to his marriage proposal. She is saved by Făt-Frumos, who is analogous to Prince Charming.) from Romanian folklore. She completed her high school studies at St.Mary's Convent High School, Mapusa , Goa.


She debuted in the Telugu language film Devadasu in 2006 starring opposite Ram and directed by Y.V.S. Chowdhary who spotted her in a Fair and Lovely ad film directed by Rakesh Roshan [3]. The film did not get good reviews from the critics, but it was a success at the box-office and Ileana attracted a lot of attention for her charm and beauty.

Her breakthrough came with her second Telugu film where she essayed the role of Shruti opposite Mahesh Babu in the highly successful Pokiri,in which she has done the role of an aerobic teacher. The film gained her good reviews.[4]. She then made her Tamil language film debut alongside Ravi Krishna in Kedi. Although the film did not do so well at the box-office, Ileana was sought after by many directors and actors in Tamil for films which she eventually rejected due to her commitments in Telugu [5][6]. Recently she acted with Pawan Kalyan in the movie Jalsa.

Her 2009 film against Ravi Teja, titled Kick was declared a hit at the box office, following which she starred in the films Rechipo and YVS Choudary's Saleem alongside Manchu Vishnu Vardhan.
