Hero Vikram is now a big name not just in Tamil but in entire south India. Vikram’s films like Aparichithudu, Sivaputhrudu and now Mallanna have made him a big star hero in the country.
Ileana is a top heroine in Telugu and she has been trying to get a foothold in Tamil as well. So when director Vikram Kumar gave her a chance to star opposite Vikram, she simply grabbed the offer with both hands.
Ileana will act opposite Vikram in the Tamil film titled 24 (Iruvatthi Naalu). The film will commence shooting sometime in November after Vikram completes work for the Mani Ratnam directed film Raavan.
