Ileana D'Cruz, who was last seen in Mubarakan opposite Arjun Kapoor, has opened up about her love affair with Australian boyfriend Andrew Kneebone. The actress is all set to sizzle onscreen with Baadshaho which also stars Emraan Hashmi, Ajay Devgn, Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jammwal in lead roles. While Ileana is proving her calibre on the professional front, the Barfi actress doesn't like to keep her relationship under the wraps or hide behind the 'just friends' tag. The 29-year-old actress is dating an Australian photographer Andrew Kneebone and, she loves to flaunt their adorable chemistry on social media.
While speaking to Mid-Day, Ileana D'Cruz said, "I've been working in the industry for 11 years. It's taken me a lot to understand the working culture. We actors get a lot of love, but at times, we get double the amount of negativity for no reason whatsoever.
“There are times when the comments become nasty. It's not fair for him to go through it. He is a normal person and is entitled to his privacy. I have had people coming and telling me that he is not an Indian and I find it stupid. He is someone who has been special to me and I don't want to be in a situation where my family is targetted for no fault of theirs”, the actress added.
In earlier interviews Ileana has said that she doesn’t believe in the concept of traditional marriages. She is happy to continue her live-in relationship as she reportedly once said, “I think marriage and live-in relationship aren t really different. It (marriage) is just a piece of paper. Marriage is great for a lot of people but I don t look at it in that way. My commitment towards him is not going to change."
Ileana D'Cruz will be seen sharing screen space with Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta in Milan Luthria's Baadshaho. The movie is slated to release on September 1.
