Ileana D’Cruz: Because I am friends with Varun Dhawan, it became terribly easy to dance with him

Ileana plays the role of a shy and mysterious girl in Main Tera Hero

Bollywood actor Ileana D’Cruz is a self-confessed foodie but she credits pilates behind her toned body. The 26-year-old actor, who will be next seen in ‘Main Tera Hero‘ opposite Varun Dhawan and Nargis Fakhri, said she makes sure to burns out the extra fat with the help of pilates.

“I don’t starve myself. I am a foodie. I eat every possible thing and if I would tell you my food chart you won’t believe that an actor can have so much. But whatever I eat I just make sure that I exercise regularly. I do pilates to stay fit,” said Ileana, who was in the capital to promote ‘Main Tera Hero‘ with Varun.

In the film, Ileana plays a college girl Sunaina but the heroine said she does not relate to her role in real life. “Sunaina is a shy and mysterious girl. In real life I am completely opposite to what my character in the film is. There are few instances where I relate myself with the character but I don’t feel I am much like Sunaina,” she said.

After proving her acting mettle in her debut film ‘Barfi!‘, Ileana is also making a mark in the industry with her dancing skills. She had matched footsteps with Shahid Kapoor and Varun in ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero‘ and now in ‘Main Tera Hero‘. “I enjoyed dancing with Varun. As we are friends, so it become terribly easy to dance with him. When we were shooting ‘Besharmi ki height’, I felt we were dancing in a club,” she said.

Directed by David Dhawan, ‘Main Tera Hero‘ is hitting theatres this Friday.
