Since childhood, we are taught about religion and God. Most of us have faith in that superpower.

However, actress Ileana D’Cruz doesn’t seem to coincide with the ideology of the existence of God

The diva has recently confessed that she does not believe in one big power as such.

“My belief is such that I don't believe in one big power as such. Nothing against religious people... I was religious at one point as well, but I just don't believe in it now,” Ileana told IANS.

"It's not that I am a cynical person. It's just that I don't believe in it,” she added.

She said her parents are religious.

"I don't know if I believe in some supernatural power, but I believe in energies like positive and negative energies," added the "Barfi!" actress.

Ileana will next be seen in "Rustom" and she is glad she waited for long to finally get a film like this. Starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, the movie is based on the K.M. Nanavati case.

Ileana is quite excited to be a part of ‘Rustom’. She was last seen in Varun Dhawan’s ‘Main Tera Hero’ in 2014.

About her absence from the silver screen, Ileana said, “It was not a conscious decision (to take on a film after long). I don't think any actor takes one year off just to chill. Unfortunately, for me there were a couple of films I was supposed to do, but that didn't work out.

"Besides, I didn't want to settle for anything. I feel lucky that I waited and everything fell into pace. Had I done some other film, I would have missed out on 'Rustom'. I am glad I did this film," she added.

Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, ‘Rustom’ also features Esha Gupta and will release on August 12.
