Ileana D'Cruz is an Indian-born Portuguese film actress, who predominantly appears in Telugu-language films. Starting her career as a model, she made her feature film debut in Y.V.S. Chowdhary's 2006 Telugu film Devadasu. She went on to appear in commercially successful ventures Pokiri (2006), Jalsa (2008) and Kick, establishing herself as one of Telugu cinema's leading actresses.

D'Cruz established herself as a leading actress in Telugu cinema with successful films including Pokiri (2006), Rakhi (2006), Munna (2007), Jalsa (2008), Kick (2009) and Julayi (2012). She made her debut in Tamil cinema with Kedi (2006) and starred in Shankar's Nanban (2012), a commercial success.

Ileana D'Cruz is originally a Mangalorean born in Mumbai and now living in Goa. Her father Ronaldo Leo is a Roman Catholic and a lawyer by profession. Her mother is a Muslim. Ileana comes from a large family with five siblings.

During that time, the manager of the hotel her mother was working in, suggested that she should start modelling and fixed a meeting with Marc Robinson. Though initially reluctant, she was persuaded and her first portfolio was created in January 2003, which she described as a "disaster". She began gaining notice through photo shoots and ramp shows and her second portfolio was set up the following year, which landed her three advertisements from Electrolux, Emami Talc and Fair and Lovely. The latter, in particular, which was directed by Rakesh Roshan, gave her exposure and brought in several offers for acting in feature films.
