Ileana D’Cruz and her boyfriend (or husband) Andrew Kneebone had shared a blurry picture of themselves with a Christmas tree on Instagram, but the post giving photo credit to her ‘hubby’ set out all sorts of rumors.
The actress reacted to the post in a recent interview “It’s exactly what you see. What’s great about the social media is that I can let people in to an extent but I don’t like talking about my past… How the relationship started and where… in interviews. It’s too personal. I won’t hide it and I won’t deny it. Everything is out there for everyone to see, don’t ask me too many questions about it. I’ll tell you what I want to tell you. Period,” Ileana told Mumbai Mirror.
When asked further, she laughed and said, “Like I said, everything is out there, I don’t need to answer your question.”
Andrew is an Australian photographer and while the topic of nepotism in Bollywood is always debated, Ileana has never thought about him joining the industry.
“I don’t know, I’ve never asked him. That would be a really big move but I also know that he is someone who would love to do something like that. He’s taken some really cool pictures of Varun (Dhawan) and Alia (Bhatt) on a flight, Ranveer (Singh) and Salman (Khan) during a show I did with them. He’s great with photos but him moving here and making a career in Bollywood is something only Andrew can answer. I think he’ll totally be up for it!” she said.
“He does watch my films and is amazingly honest. He spoils me with his compliments. He’s like, “You’re such an amazing actor, you’re really good!” and I’m like, ‘You don’t have to say that just because you love me.’ But I think he really means it and it means a lot to me because I know he is someone who will never lie even to me. Sometimes, I’m really upset if a film hasn’t done well and he’ll watch it and tell me what he felt was wrong. It matters to me what he thinks,” Ileana shared.
On the work front Ileana is set to star in ‘Raid’ opposite Ajay Devgn, which will hit the theatres on 16 March.
