Ileana D’Cruz – Biography & More
Ileana D’Cruz is an Indian film actress who mostly appears in Telugu and Bollywood cinema.
D’Cruz was born into a Goan Catholic family in Mahim, Mumbai, and raised partly in Mumbai and partly in Goa. Her family relocated to Parra, Goa when she was 10 years old. Her mother tongue is Konkani.
During that time, the manager of the hotel her mother was working in, suggested that she had a vibrant smile and should start modelling and fixed a meeting with Marc Robinson. Though initially reluctant, she was persuaded and her first portfolio was created in January 2003, which she described as a “disaster”. She began gaining notice through photo shoots and ramp shows and her second portfolio was set up the following year, which landed her three advertisements from Electrolux, Emami Talc and Fair & Lovely.
The latter, in particular, which was directed by Rakesh Roshan, gave her exposure and brought in several offers for acting in feature films. In 2014, she acquired Portuguese nationality.
She won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut – South for the 2006 Telugu film Devadasu. She has appeared in hits such as Pokiri(2006), Jalsa (2008), Kick (2009) and Julayi (2012), establishing herself as one of Telugu cinema's leading actresses. D'Cruz made her Kollywood debut with Kedi and made a comeback in Shankar's Nanban (2012).
In 2012, she made her Bollywood debut with Anurag Basu's critically and commercially successful Barfi!, for which she received critical appreciation and several accolades including the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
Later she starred in the action comedies Phata Poster Nikhla Hero (2013) and Main Tera Hero (2014), the romantic comedy Happy Ending(2014), the crime thriller Rustom (2016) and the heist-drama in Baadshaho (2017).
