From Barfi! to Baadshaho, Ileana D’Cruz has by far accomplished a journey of six films and while she has a lot to talk about professionally, the actress’ personal life too is under scrutiny. Let’s say the constant updates on social media followed by public appearances were followed by speculations and media reports indicating Ileana D’Cruz’s relationship with international photographer Andrew Kneebone. While the actress has remained silent throughout about her personal life, she recently spoke about her relationship with him as well as her thoughts on marriage and live-in relationship.
Talking about they like to keep their space and how they tried understanding each other even amidst the chaos of rumours and reports, Ileana asserted that she is in a happy space personally and professionally. She maintained that, both she and Andrew respect each other’s line of work and are aware of the pros and cons of their profession. On the other hand, when asked about marriage plans, Ileana went on to explain her idea of marriage and live-in relationship.
Terming that live-in relationships and marriage are similar in their way with the latter only being a paper formality, Ileana D’Cruz added how marriage changes the life of people. While she explained that she doesn’t view marriage in that way, she stated that her commitment towards him [Andrew Kneebone] will never change.
On the other hand, she also spoke about the situation in Bollywood where married actresses often don’t get work. According to Ileana, there are only two ways of dealing with it – either accept it and move on or fight back and the actress clearly revealed that she would chose the first option. However, she agrees that it is unfair that many super talented actresses are denied opportunities because they are married. But Ileana is quite satisfied with her current professional life further adding that she has no complaints.
