When He switched on the TV, he noticed Ileana in Fair and Lovely advertisement. Incidentally Genelia also acted in Fair and Lovely ad earlier.
When YVS enquired about Ileana, he was told that she came to Hyderabad to sign in Teja’s film. At that time, Teja signed Ileana for two projects. Teja is a good friend of him. YVS called him up and requested him to spare the dates of Ileana so that she can simultaneously participate in two shoots.

Then Teja called him up after 20 days and said that the script is changed a bit and he don’t mind letting Ileana get off. YVS latched on to it and signed Ileana.
