One more South Indian actress is stepping into Bollywood! With her entry to Bollywood she has replaced Bollywood Diva, Katrina Kaif! Well I am talking about Tollywood actress Ileana who is considered to be the Kareena Kapoor of the South.

The actress will be launched by director Anurag Basu in his film, in which Ranbir Kapoor is playing lead role. Apparently, Anurag was searching his female from long and finally zeroed on Ileana.
