Ileana D'Cruz Wants To Do Something That Alia Bhatt Did

Actress Ileana D'Cruz, who will be seen romancing Saif Ali Khan in Happy Ending, says she would not mind going without makeup to do a performance-oriented role.

27-year-old actress, Ileana D'Cruz says she was mighty impressed with Alia Bhatt in Imtiaz Ali's Highwayand wants to do a similar character which provides her with ample scope to showcase her talent.

"Alia did a fantastic job in Highway. I would like to do something like that where there is no need for makeup and it does not matter how I look; a role where the sole focus is on my performance," said Ileana.

The actress, who made her Bollywood debut with Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Barfi, says she consciously tries to show her versatility with her choice of films. Ileana's second film Mai Tera Herowas an out-and-out comedy film and her upcoming movie opposite Saif Ali Khan Happy Endingis a romantic-comedy.

"I want my body of work to be versatile. Main Tera Herowas this exaggerated, loud comedy but Happy Endingis much subdued with a different concept. The characters I played in both the films are poles apart from each other. In Happy Ending, I play a sassy girl, who actually thinks she is a guy in head. I have not done a role like that before," she said.

Ileana initially thought Happy Endingwould be a cakewalk for her as she had already done a comedy but she found that it is not always easy to come up with perfect dead-pan expressions.

"There is a thin line between giving dead-pan expressions and coming out as cold on screen, I had to maintain that. My character is of a girl who does not believe in love, though she writes love stories. I thought it would be easy as I had done Main Tera Herobut subtle comedy is much more difficult," Ileana added.
