‘I can’t sit still’

“Ijust can’t sit still!” she tells CT over the phone-line from her residence in Mumbai. But topleague actress Ileana D’Cruz might just have to, since the doctor has advised her two weeks’ bed-rest after she injured her ankle while shooting for a Tollywood film with Nitin earlier this week. “I’m much better now,” she says, adding, “But it was really painful on the first day. The doctor asked me to get an x-ray done, but it wasn’t a fracture. Nitin was really helpful through all this.” So, how’s she killing time through this unforeseen break from work? “It’s extremely frustrating, to sit with my legs up as I’m more used to jumping around!” she chirps jovially. So, it’s watching movies and a lot of ghar ka khana for her, since she’s got mom and the rest of the family taking care of her. “I'm eating a lot. My appetite’s increased. Hope I don’t put on weight!” she confesses. “But I’m getting quite a firing from everyone when I try to get up.”
When is she expected to be back in action? “I hope it’s not two weeks. I’ll check with my doctor in a week. Maybe I can take the plaster off, but I can’t dance or run around.”
We wish her a speedy recovery, to which she signs off with a “Thanks. I hope to be
back soon.”
