Actor Illeana D’Cruz, who plays the parallel lead in director Anurag Basu’s Barfi!, now wants to diversify her career and fulfil her long-stalled dream to turn singer. A close associate of the actor reveals, “She had a small band in Goa and used to jam regularly before she got into acting.”
Ranbir offers the cake to Barfee co-star Ileana D'Cruz.
In fact, the actor will start her vocal training in July in preparation for her first album. “She is considered a good singer among her friends and has offers to record a pop and soft-rock album with Hindi and English songs,” says the source.
Ileana is currently shooting with Ranbir Kapoor in Ooty for Barfi!. When contacted, Illeana confirms this development: “I always wanted to become a singer, but I was not able to pursue it till now.” The actor will be seen in Khiladi 786 next.
