Never Quit Telugu Industry for Bollywood: Ileana D'Cruz
Ileana D'Cruz, who has made a comeback to the Telugu industry after six years with the forthcoming film Amar Akbar Anthony, says she never quit her career in the south to build one in Bollywood.
"People have always had misconceptions about my career. After I signed "Barfi", I was shocked to read reports that I have quit Telugu cinema for Bollywood. These were baseless allegations and it's time to put them to rest. Why will I give up an industry which has given me an identity?" she said in an interview.
In 2012, she made her Bollywood debut with Ranbir Kapoor's Barfi! "It's just that I was getting really good work in Bollywood that I didn't have time for Telugu films. Also, after a point I was being approached for dance numbers by Telugu filmmakers and I was not excited about these offers. Therefore, I waited for the right film to return and that's how Amar Akbar Anthony happened," she clarified.
