Mumbai: Actress Ileana D'Cruz said that she was religious at one point but now she does not "believe in one big power as such."
- Rustom stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role
- I don't think any actor takes one year off just to chill: Ileana
- Rustom also features Esha Gupta and will release on August 12
When Ileana was asked whether she is very spiritual or religious in real life, she 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," said Ileana.
Ileana said that 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 Ileana.
Ileana will be seen next in Rustom and she is glad that she waited for long to finally get a film like this. Starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, Rustom is based on the K M Nanavati case.
"It was not a conscious decision (to take 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," said Ileana.
"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," said Ileana.
Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, Rustom also features Esha Gupta and will release on August 12.
