There has been a lot of bad press for Ileana in recent times. The actress has been accused of being a tantrum - throwing, unprofessional diva. Farah Khan, one of the top choreographers in the country as well as director of hit films like Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om dismisses these reports as vicious fabrications.
Farah said that she has worked with Ileana on Nanban which has Vijay in the lead and Shankar as the director and found her to be the consummate professional. She said that though Ileana had injured her legs badly while filming some intricate dance sequences, she was an absolute trooper and even wanted to continue shooting though she was in a lot of pain. Farah has said that slanderous reports about Ileana should be ignored.
