Some time back there were rumors that Ileana
had agreed to do an item song in YVS Chowdary
’s latest film ‘Rey’, which is the debut film of Chiranjeevi’s nephew Sai Dharam Tej. But the director denied rumors that she is doing an item song in his ‘Rey’ and said that he can’t even think of casting her in an item song as it was he who introduced her to the film industry and that she is one of the leading actresses today in Tollywood. Further he expressed his happiness for her working with superstar Rajnikanth (for Rana) and a great director like Shankar (for 3 Idiots) and questioned the media that at this juncture why would she even think of an item song?
