The grapevine is rife with rumours of the slim beauty Ileana, having turned down an offer to shake legs with Power Star Pawan Kalyan in the famous ‘Munni’ number in Gabbar Singh, Telugu remake of Dabbang. Reportedly, the actress gave the thumbs down to the offer even though producer Ganesh offered a whopping Rs. 80 lakh to 1 crore for 3-days work!
“Yes, she was approached to play the role but she turned it down. She is a top league actress in T-town and doesn’t need to do an item number to gain mileage and publicity, a friend close to the actress said.
Meanwhile, the director has also approached Bipasha Basu and Trisha, but nothing is fixed.We are exploring various options but it’s too early to talk about it since we’ll shoot the number only in April. But it will definitely be a big name,� director Harris Shankar said.
