Where they say two actresses can never be friends in Bollywood, we have an example of Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty who became BFFs that too on a film set. Back in 2017, when they shot for Mubarakan with Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor, little did they know that the two would end up becoming good friends.
While Ileana’s birthday is just around the corner (Nov 1), Athiya takes the opportunity to share something interesting about her dear friend. She says, “Ileana has an amazing collection of mints. So, wherever she goes, she has a mint box with her. She has such yummiest of mints that I would steal them from her (laughs).
Meanwhile, about their friendship, Athiya had once told BT, “I feel from day one I have been able to trust her. I have told her things about myself and I know they won’t go anywhere else. It’s very casual between us. We can just be stuffing our faces and not say a word yet enjoy each other’s company.”
And about her choice of friends, Ileana says, “I make friends depending upon how they treat people. It doesn’t matter to me how you treat your co-stars, director, but I see how a person treats people from different hierarchies on the set. In my head I will judge you if put someone down if he or she is not at the same level as you.”
