Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty’s friendship is quite well known. The duo got to know each other on the sets of Mubarakan (2017) and became good friends from there on. Athiya says that while the two can chat about various things under the sun, most of their conversations revolve around her pet dog!
The Hero actress tells Bombay Times, “I have a dog that Ileana’s obsessed with and I keep sending videos of my dog to her. In fact this happens so often that my dog is also familiar with Ileana now.” She further adds, “We love dogs and even send each other cute animal memes (laughs).”
With so much of a dog banter, Ileana even compares Athiya with a dog! “Athiya is so much like a clumsy husky (a breed of a dog), always bouncing, tripping and falling (laughs),” she says, who also mentions that she misses the time they spent in London during the shooting of the Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor co-starrer.
Last we heard, Ileana was in the US spending time with her family in Houston. Whereas, Athiya is in Khandala with her daddy, actor Suniel Shetty at their farmhouse. In times like these, where they can’t meet, the actresses take to video calls to continue staying in touch with each other.
