Ileana, whose last major on-screen outing was in 2014 in Happy Ending starring Saif Ali Khan, says she was not happy with the kind of work she was being offered. “I know it is a cliched answer, but I didn’t like anything that was coming my way... I wasn’t really happy about the work that I was being offered,” said Ileana.
“... I rather not do anything than do something half heartedly... It was not a conscious decision to stay away (from the big screen) for that much amount of time,” the Barfi! star added. Ileana says she wanted to do something that makes her feel good at the end of the day.
“I am okay with doing commercial movies and playing a role where I am a bimbette on screen, it’s fun doing it... But after a point and after doing certain amount of films, I wanted to do something that makes me feel good at the end of the day,” she said. The Main Tera Hero actor says when Rustom came along she actually felt “that this is something that I feel great doing...” Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, Rustom is slated to release on August 12.
