Ileana D’cruz feels that she is selfish as an actor

Ileana D’cruz must be enjoying the success of her movies one by one like Mubarakan, Baadshaho, and now Raid. On her success, she said laughing, “I want to curl up on the couch and watch TV”.

She further added that “Honestly! People ask you questions like, ‘How do you deal with failure (when your films don’t do well)?’ For me, it’s the same as how I deal with success. I deal with it like, ‘Okay, the films have either done well or not done well. I should move on.’ I can’t hold on to it”.

She is already a successful actress in Telugu movies. And she made her debut in Bollywood with Barfi in 2012 alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. After that, she had worked with big actors like Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor.

When Ileana was asked that how your career is shaping in Bollywood, she said, “It’s slower than what I expected it to be, but I prefer that because I like the choices I’ve made”. The actor has done only eight films in the past six years, to which she said, “It’s because I don’t sign just every film that comes my way! I’ve rejected quite a few films because of the story and the role. Sometimes, the story is great, but my character is not something I loved”.

One such film she turned down was Special 26 (2013). “My frank discussion with Neeraj (Pandey, the director) was, ‘I love the story, but I wish I had something more to do with it. I can’t ask you to increase my character because the film demands that’,” said Ileana. “Then came Rustom (which Pandey had co-produced).” Ileana feels she is “selfish as an actor” that way. “I won’t be part of a film just because it’s great! I want to have a role for myself. Some films I’ve not done because of date problems; also, a few [that I turned down] didn’t work well eventually at the box office, so I heaved a sigh of relief” she laughs.

Ileana was last seen in her latest film Raid alongside Ajay Devgn and she played a role of a housewife.

Raid is doing well on Box Office too.
