When asked Ileana that whether she is giving importance to Hindi films, she said, “There is news that I have decided to quit acting in South Indian language films including Telugu and will be acting only in Hindi films. This is a mere rumour.
Eight years back I commenced my cinema career through a Telugu film. I got the recognition there. I am acting with Shahid Kapoor in a Hindi film. Many are asking that whether I don’t have any South Indian films on hand. I am listening to stories in Telugu.
I will act very soon in South Indian films. Telugu and Hindi are both important. I will give importance to the both languages equally. My recent shock was that of the Delhi girl gang rape. I have acted in a film titled Rakhi. I have donned the role of a journalist who fights with the people for justice. In real life also I will fight for justice of women. We should fight for justice boldly especially in these kind of cases. The society should change its view on women. This change will take place only if a woman in a family is respected.”
