Ileana D’Cruz is one Bollywood actor, who knows how to take on her trolls online. Last year, when someone had called her ‘horny’ on Twitter, she had lashed out at the individual by calling him a moron.
The Barfi actor had later sensationally revealed her struggle with depression body dysmorphic disorder for 15 long years.
Ileana, who’s now completed 12 years in Bollywood, said that she never wanted to be an actor. “I was this very self-conscious, shy person once I hit my teens. So I was constantly picked on for my body type. The obsession started when I was about 15; my entire goal was to make sure I was accepted by everyone,” she had revealed.
Lately, Ileana has been posting photos, including bold ones, from foreign destinations. She also appears to have come out of her depression phase and is reported to be in a relationship with Australian photographer Andrew Kneebone.
Faced with constant trolling online in response to her bold photos, Ileana decided to have a go at her critics with equally bold photo. While posting her seemingly topless photo, Ileana wrote, “fuck their opinions and what they think you are. you are NOT made of their flaws. you are made of your own darkness and exploding stars.”
No sooner had she posted the photo, she became the target of her trolls once again. One user wrote, “Shame shame.. where is your clothes? Go wear something and come.” Another wrote, “Never expected this photo from you.” One user wrote that the topless photo showed that she was still depressed. “Her caption shows that she is depressed,” he wrote. One fan wrote, “Perhaps this is the final destination you people like to reach…how to get nude in public..like many other do..congrats.”
Not too long ago, when she posted a photo of soaking herself at a Fiji beach in a swimsuit, she had faced a barrage of criticism. While posting the photo, Ileana had written, “You can find me somewhere in between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity, and slaying my goal.”
This was just a week after she had posted a video. “Sunshine + tan = a very happy me,” the caption of her video had read.
Ileana will soon be seen in Raid opposite Ajay Devgn.
