Goan beauty Ileana D'Cruz, who is known for making unfiltered statements, has hit back at trolls in style.Saying that she's not someone who can easily hide her emotions, Ileana added that she couldn't put a smiling face for the public all the time. "I am a public figure, not a public property. Nobody has the right to tell me what is right or what's wrong. Do these men treat their wives, mothers, daughters and sisters the same way? I'm a woman, too. Why would they not treat me with respect?" she retorted.


Ileana further said that she was irritated by people asking more about her Australian boyfriend, Andrew Kneebone than about her films. "It's sad that trolls talk about his skin color, and they lecture me that I'm dating him because he is white. People are so racist and those comments piss me off," said Ileana, revealing about the racist comments made by trolls at her relationship. 


On work front, Ileana is happy that she has two decent box office earners (Mubarkaan and Badshaho) in very short span.
