    "Bollywood is known worldwide and the stars are very popular and hence it is nice (that the Bollywood stars also are performing at the event)," she told PTI after the launch of La Senza store here. "But if you are asking me if I support Donald Trump? I don't," she added.


    Asked whether she would perform at such electoral campaigns in the US, she said, "Whenever I take up any kind of endorsement or any kind of event, I do so with a lot of background research. I think, if it works, it is great for them (those participating)."

    "Look at films like 'Dhoni' and 'Pink', they have done goodbusiness. So, I think there is a massive amount of success,and I love the way they are experimenting. I don't think there is a problem with the films and their success rate,"Ileana added.
