By know all the movie lovers know the fact that Illeana is making her debut in Hindi opposite Ranbir Kapoor.

The film's director Anurag Basu now officially confirms her presence in the movie titled Barfee. She plays the second lead in the movie that has Priyanka Chopra as the main heroine.

"Anurag showed the portfolio of Illeana to Ranbir Kapoor who felt Illeana had the same delicacy and grace as Deepika Padukone. He immediately approved of Illeana.

Things were finalized within days. Anurag met Illeana and her mother and explained the role," said our source.

Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Basu always had an eye for new talents. He has again found a new talent for his next movie BARFEE starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. They were looking for an actress to play the second lead in the film.

Earlier the same role was offered to Asin and Deepika Padukone. Asin did not accept because of money issues. However Deepika could not accept the film because the male lead is none other than her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.

Anurag saw the pictures of South Indian actress Ileana DíCruz, who debuted in 2006 Telugu film Devadasu. Basu then showed the pictures to Ranbir, who looked her immediately and said that Illeana had the kind of delicacy and grace like Deepika.

Thatís how the 23-year-old South Indian star Illeana got her first Bollywood break. Anurag met the actress and her mother and things got finalized in few days. He elaborated them about Illeanaís role in BARFEE and also made it clear that Priyanka Chopra will be playing the other leading lady. Illeana, who has already grabbed the lead role in Tamil remake of 3 IDIOTS, will have to get her Hindi diction right before she faces camera for BARFEE.

So, here comes another south actress to make her mark in Bollywood like Asin and Genelia. Hope at least this one becomes successful!!
