Actor Ileana D’Cruz says she was religious at one point, but now she does not “believe in one big power as such”. Asked if she is very spiritual or religious in real life, Ileana said, “My belief is such that I don’t believe in one big power as such. Nothing against religious people... I was religious at one point as well, but I just don’t believe in it now.
“It’s not that I am a cynical person. It’s just that I don’t believe in it.” She said her parents are religious. “I don’t know if I believe in some supernatural power, but I believe in energies like positive and negative energies,” added the Barfi! actor. Ileana will next be seen in Rustom and she is glad she waited for long to finally get a film like this. Starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, the movie is based on the K.M. Nanavati case.
“It was not a conscious decision (to take on a film after long). I don’t think any actor takes one year off just to chill. Unfortunately, for me there were a couple of films I was supposed to do, but that didn’t work out. “Besides, I didn’t want to settle for anything. I feel lucky that I waited and everything fell into place. Had I done some other film, I would have missed out on Rustom. I am glad I did this film,” she added.
Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, Rustom also features Esha Gupta.
