Not approached for ‘Judwaa 2’: Ileana

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Ileana D’Cruz has denied being part of actor Varun Dhawan’s forthcoming “Judwaa 2”, which is a sequel to the 1997 Salman Khan starrer “Judwaa”.

There were reports that the “Rustom” actress and Parineeti Chopra have been roped in for the sequel. The original was directed by David Dhawan and starred Karishma Kapoor and Rambha.

When asked if she has been approached, Ileana denied and said she is instead looking forward to her upcoming projects, “Baadshaho” and “Mubaraka”.

“No I haven’t been approached (for ‘Judwaa 2’). But I am very much excited for ‘Mubaraka’ and ‘Baadshaho’. I hope you guys like it,” she told reporters.

“Baadshaho” stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Esha Gupta among others.

Reportedly the film is set during the 70s emergency period and features the 28-year-old actress as a charming girl.

While “Mubaraka” features Arjun Kapoor in a double role and also stars Anil Kapoor, Athiya Shetty and Amrita Singh.

The comedy film is directed by Anees Bazmee.

Ileana was speaking at a special event of Ponds institute about skin care.

When asked if there is a pressure for actresses to always look good, Ileana said,”I think so, definitely. I have been around for over 10 years. More so because when photos are taken of mine at the airport, I would rather be in track pants.”

“The other day they clicked photos of me and I had injured my shoulders badly. So, I was holding on to it in a lot of pain, and the caption said ‘why do sad ?'”

The actress, however, said the constant scrutiny of a star is just a small problem.

“There is a lot of pressure, but I can’t complain. It is something which comes with the job. It is just about pros and cons, and this one is a small con.
