Asked if she is very spiritual or religious in real life, Ileana said here: “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!” actress.
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 pace. 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.
