All that sweet talk doesn’t work, being straightforward backfires: Ileana

Mumbai: Ileana D’Cruz says being straightforward has always landed her in trouble.

The 28-year-old ‘Rustom’ actress said she has been misquoted a lot of times but it’s tough for her to fake.

“I have been told that I am too straightforward. But that’s me. What you see is what you get with me. All that sweet talk doesn’t work. I have been misquoted a lot of times due to my straightforward nature. Being straightforward tends to backfires a lot of times,” Ileana told PTI.

The actress feels social media is one place where things go berserk, but still she prefers to be her real-self on the platform.

“Social media makes things tough a lot of times. People just misunderstand. But I guess that’s what social media is for. I would rather be me and have people misunderstand me than being a plastic. I am not asking anyone to like me or hate me.

I don’t disrespect anybody. I would be the last person to pick a fight with someone.”

On work front, the actress has signed on to star in “Baadshaho” and will start filming in November.

Ileana turned showstopper for designer Ridhi Mehra’s collection “Arcadia” at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016.

The feminine, luxurious collection brought alive elements of floral gardens and vintage fountains. Intricate embroidery, mosaic prints, laser cutwork and appliques were creatively used in the collection.
