When on the Christmas Eve, last year, Ileana D’Cruz, who is known for keeping her personal life under the wraps, took to Instagram to share her picture in a red dress clicked by her boyfriend Andrew Kneebone — who is a professional photographer – and mentioned him as her hubby in the Instagram post, there were rumours that they both have tied the knot.
“My favorite time of the year #christmastime #happyholidays #home #love #family Photo by hubby @andrewkneebonephotography.”
However, when at the event to launch the trailer of her new film Raid, Ileana was asked if she is married to the Australian photographer and her boyfriend, she said: “I don’t know what comment to make. Professionally, I am doing well. Personally, also, I am doing well. Thank you. I don’t think there are any comments to be made. I have kept my personal life fairly private. I don’t like to talk about it too much. But it’s pretty much there for the world to see.”
Ileana D’Cruz, who never shies away from sharing pictures with Andrew or even the beautiful pictures clicked by him, also said, “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.”
She added, “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 targeted for no fault of theirs.”
On the work front, Ileana has two films in her kitty, including Raid, which stars Ajay Devgn and Telugu film Rana.
