Ileana D’Cruz on Religion, Rustom and Realization

Goa beauty Ileana D’Cruz made so many temples in the hearts of her fans by her sterling performance and gorgeous looks.



The talented actress received critical appreciation and received Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut with Bollywood film Barfi which is critically and commercially succeeded in 2012.

She recollected her memories on different stages of her career and personal life in an interview given to Filmfare.

The actress says at one point she was religious but now she doesn’t believe in omnipotent but believes in positive and negative energies.

Further, the Bollywood beauty said it did not mean that she believed in supernatural powers or a cynical person. It’s just her belief. Ironically her parents were so religious.

Ileana was 18 when she started her acting career, and she hated it like anything and felt acting as a chore but did it only for money. And her family wanted her to continue in the acting career, she revealed.

Later on different kinds of experiences changed her perspective towards everything and now she was a completely renovated person and realised about all things, according to her own version. Currently, she’s enjoying her profession and showing responsibility towards work rather than considering it like another work.

After Barfi, she was seen in Phata Poster Nikla Hero, Main Tera Hero, Happy Ending and now she will be seen next in Akshay Kumar’s ‘Rustom’ movie.

She took one year off from her last movie ‘Happy Ending’, before being featured in upcoming movie Rustom. Responding on the break, she said it was not a conscious decision but unfortunately things didn’t work out and it happened.

She is very excited about Rustom and felt very happy to share screen space with brilliant actor like Akshay kumar.

The movie is packed with lot of emotions and it’s about a wife cheating on her husband. And I am glad that I did this film, said Ileana with a smile.


I am passionate about movies. Started watching films at early stage in my life. From Adaz Apna Apna to Matrix Trilogy, I love any movie that creates curiosity. Believe me, my life itself became more curious after marriage.
