The coronavirus pandemic has had a ripple effect on Ileana D’Cruz‘s personal as well as her professional life. While she wants to achieve big things for herself, these unprecedented times have taught her the value of spending time with her family. In a recent interview, Illeana admitted, ‘The pandemic (last year) was a bit hard only because I was away from my family. Losing a member of my family who was so close to me hit me very hard. It made it especially harder because I was away from them all.’ The actress goes on to say, ‘So now I try and spend most of my time with them and I made a point to spend a little more time over Christmas and New Years for sure.’ As a career-oriented individual, she went on to confess that she feels she is constantly evolving.
