Recently during an interview, she was asked about her take on South Film Industry. The actress said, “In my first ever shot, there was a big shell dropped on my belly in slow motion. I even asked the director why we are doing it and he said it would look beautiful. Each time it happened, I was told, ‘you’ve got a very attractive waist, it’ll look pretty and it’s very feminine, but I truly didn’t understand it.”
It’s indeed true that an actress is meant to add the glamour element to a film. Even though there are actresses playing strong woman roles still in those films before showing off the strong side, the director always focus on their glamour.
Ileana further said, “You see similar things even today. This is how women are looked at – as a form of beauty, a form of art, and I suppose they get picked in a film in this particular way.” The actress indirectly pointed out that she hasn’t faced such situations in Bollywood.
Well, what do you think about Ileana’s statement ? Comment below!
