The stunning Goan beauty Ileana D’Cruz celebrates her birthday today. The gorgeous beauty turns a year older today. She forayed into Bollywood with the cult classic ‘Barfi’ starring the handsome hunk Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.

As she celebrates her birthday today, let’s take a look into her journey to stardom in the South film industry before jumping to Bollywood. After making her big debut with Devadasu, Ileana rose to stardom and became one of the most sought-after actresses down South.

Her performance in the movie made fans crazy and Devadasu won her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debutant. She then went on to star with several A-list actors like Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, Ravi Teja, and Allu Arjun.

Thanks to her good looks, Ileana was linked up with several actors since she entered the film industry. Ileana later revealed that she was indeed in a relationship with a south actor, but he broke her trust.

“I was in a very serious relationship with a co-star who I loved and trusted, but he broke my trust several times and made me feel I was not worth it. So now, I have learnt to be careful,” Ileana was quoted as saying by a leading daily.

However, Ileana refused to reveal the name of the actor with whom she was in a relationship. Later, she left the South film industry and forayed into Bollywood. Even as Ileana refused to name the actor, it is suspected that she was in a relationship with everyone’s Darling Prabhas. 

The two starred together in ‘Munna’ and was a favourite Jodi after the film. Their chemistry seemed like the two were indeed dating. However, there has been no official confirmation in this regard.

On the other hand, many believe Ileana was in a relationship with her debutant co-star Ram Pothineni after the two worked together in ‘Devadasu’.
