‘Mubarakan' actress Ileana D’Cruz opens up about her family bonds – The actress, who recently judged a beauty contest, says that she did it for them
Ileana D’Cruz is a private person and does not talk much about her family. However, recently, she opened up in an interview and shared details about the close bond she has with her parents and how they have supported her in her career. She says, “When I started out (in films), I didn’t have the conviction at all, but both my mom and dad really encouraged me. They were like, ‘You never know; it might be a good thing, try it out’. I am so glad they did because it was their encouragement that gave me a little bit strength.”
The actress, who recently judged a beauty contest, says that she did it for them. “It was such a big thing to announce to the family that I had judged it. My mom messaged me, ‘I am so proud of you my big girl, you judged a contest.’ It was sweet. I think they are proud of me to a certain extent, but they are more proud for the person that I am and not just for my work in films,” she says, adding that she is not close to her cousins on either side of the family.
