Ileana D’Cruz, the Tamil-Telugu actress who has been making waves in Bollywood for the past few years, has gone topless in her upcoming film Baadshaho which releases in theatres this Friday (01st September). The actress, however, hasn’t gone for frontal nudity but only appears in a ‘backless’ avatar.
Starring Ajay Devgn, Vidyut Jamwal, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana and Esha Gupta, Baadshaho has been directed by Milan Luthria and scripted by Rajat Arora. The story, which is set in the backdrop of the dark days of emergency during the seventies, is apparently about loot of a truck loaded with millions worth gold. The film’s trailer, released a few days back, shows Ileana appearing topless in front of Ajay Devgn.
“Ajay is a great actor sans ego and we have mutual trust and respect. I felt highly comfortable working with him. I have never said I won’t lock lips with my co-stars or don a particular costume, etc. I have always done what my characters demanded from me. In a particular sequence in Baadshaho, it was actually my idea to strip and stand topless in front of Ajay to depict the character’s confidence in her lover.
“Soon after the sequence was filmed, Ajay protected me till a crew member brought me clothes to drape myself. The sequence wasn’t a pre-planned one; it was I who thought up this idea which was agreed to by director Luthria. I’m thankful and happy that the sequence has come out really well,” says Ileana D’Cruz, who turns 30 in a couple of months and still possesses a figure-to-die-for.
