Ileana D’Cruz has got a jackpot role in a film. After the success of Barfi and Main Tera Hero, Ileana was waiting for the films but weren’t coming much. There was a lot of gap since her last film release. She got a chance in Happy Ending opposite Saif Ali Khan which didn’t make in front of Box office.
After a long time, Ileana now bagged a role opposite Asia’s biggest action Star Jackie Chan. She also flew Dubai for the shooting of the film. The film is entitled “Kung Fu Yoga” which is directed by Stanley Tong. He is the director who cast Mallika Sherawat opposite Jackie Chan in ‘The Myth’ in which Mallika Sherawat had a blink-and-miss role.
Ileana is going to act in few action sequences which are going to be supervised by Jackie Chan himself. A source close to the project said, “Ileana’s role in ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ is far lengthier than Mallika’s in ‘The Myth’. She is there all through the film.” Sonu Sood is also acting in the film as Main villain.
The filmmakers are also looking for the parallel lead to Jackie Chan. Earlier; Hrithik Roshan had agreed but opted out at the end. Thus, the makers are in hunt of another lead beside Jackie Chan.
