Ileana D'Cruz admits turning down two projects starring none other than Salman Khan in the lead role. You would be surprised to know that both of those movies (Wanted, Kick) went on to become blockbusters.
Its a fact that Ileana was the first choice to romance Salman Khan in 'Pokiri' and 'Kick' Hindi remake. She, however, couldn't sign those projects due to the call sheets issue. The Goan Beauty hadn't paid much attention when she was approached for 'Wanted' as Salman wasn't in great form at that time. The dream run of Sallu Bhai had actually begun after the release of 'Wanted' directed by Prabhudeva. When it comes to 'Kick', Ileana really wanted to be part of it as Salman was India's Biggest Superstar by then but she missed the opportunity due to other commitments.
Fortunately, Both 'Wanted' and 'Kick' went on to become memorable hits for Salman Khan. What if Sallu Bhai considers 'rejection from Ileana' as a sentiment. Hip Beauty mayn't get the opportunity to romance India's biggest crowd puller ever.
Ileana's recent outing 'Pagalpanti' was a disaster. This high-budget comedy caper starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Arshad Warsi failed to cross even the Rs 100 crore mark.
