I don’t want to be a prop in film: Ileana D’Cruz

Vastavam web: Actor Ileana D’Cruz says it would be wrong on her part to say that she cannot be a “prop” in a movie as she has enjoyed playing a glamorous diva on screen.Recently, actor Taapsee Pannu had spoken out against the way women were portrayed in films, recalling a shot from her debut Telugu film, in which a coconut was thrown at her navel.”They threw a coconut at me. I don’t know what is so sensuous about a coconut hitting my midriff,” Pannu had said at the time. “I don’t want to put a finger and say it only happens in South Indian films, it happens everywhere. There could be films in Bollywood as well, where the women sometimes are just a prop.”It would be prudish to say ‘I don’t want to be a prop in a film’ because there are certain films I’ve loved doing as I have looked very glamorous in them. At the end of the day, it’s your choice if you want to do it,” Ileana tells.The actor says she had been in such situations when she was shot in a “certain” way but couldn’t object as she was a newcomer in the world of films back then. “So it really depends. Some people are ok with it, some are not. At the end of the day, you are doing the film for the audience. May be some section of people actually like watching this,” she adds.Recalling the experience while shooting her very first film, Ileana, who will next be seen in “Baadshaho”, says, “They threw a fairly big shell on my belly. I didn’t understand it. I asked the director, ‘Why did you throw a shell on me?’ and he was like, ‘it looks beautiful’. I said but it was really heavy.”There was also a shot with flowers around my waist. I asked why are you taking shot of my waist, he said because it looks beautiful, lovely. It is supposed to be a mark of a woman’s beauty, it’s the perception there, they believe that the waist line is the most attractive part.”  3) I does not believe that beloved “Friends” characters: Jennifer Vastavam web: Actor Jennifer Aniston has revealed that she does not believe that beloved “Friends” characters, Joey and Rachel could have ended up together.From time immemorial, there has been a section of fans that was rooting for the duo to become a couple, but the 48- year-old actor has quashed the conspiracy theories, reported Elle magazine.”Don’t you?
