Actresses, lately, seem to be on a Tollywood bashing mode. It all started with Kajal when she denied big budget films with top actors. Additionally, Ileana's comments to the Bollywood media were too surprising to ignore.
To questions about alleged unprofessional behavior, Kajal clarified with the media that she had declined from walking the ramp in JJ Valya’s collection much before the show was scheduled. There was no issue of last minute changes as the communication was pucca. The designer had also vouched for the same, saying all is well between him and Kajal. The actress appears very busy, according to her reasons for staying away, though she has not announced any new film projects yet.
Ileana, meanwhile, has confirmed what Telugu film industry people feared so far regarding her. She is openly talking ill of Tollywood, saying that they are too respectful of each other. It is known that Ileana gave tough time to certain movie makers. She was also believed to be rude. Now, she says actresses down South are required to stand up and give respect when a director enters.
She reportedly said she considers that as false respect. If standing up for the boss is false respect, then Ileana is right when she says she does not fit the Tollywood scene. She has taken a dig at the industry that has given her the popularity to be 'discovered' in Bollywood. But, there is obviously no gratitude while she shoots more comments like “people only worked with me because of my stardom though they hated me.”
