Ileana D'Cruz made a comeback to the Telugu industry after six years with Amar Akbar Anthony and sharing her experience, the actress said that she would never quit her career in the south to build one in Bollywood.
In a group interaction in November, Ileana D'Cruz said that it wasn't a conscious decision to move away from Telugu filmdom.
"People have always had misconceptions about my career. After I signed Barfi, I was shocked to read reports that I have quit Telugu cinema for Bollywood. These were baseless allegations and it's time to put them to rest. Why will I give up an industry which has given me an identity," Ileana D'Cruz added further.
"When I was shooting for Julayi, I got an offer to work in 'Barfi!'. It was a project with an interesting story and I didn't want to miss. I even consulted exploring the opportunity with director Trivikram and he was very happy for me."
Even without knowing anything about my role, he pushed me to accept the offer," Ileana D'Cruz said, adding she got so busy in Bollywood post "Barfi!", she had to miss out on several Telugu offers.
