Ileana D’Cruz has been spotted with her Australian boyfriend Andrew Kneebone many times, whenever they are in Mumbai. They are seen indulging in PDA and chatting animatedly. Though Illeana would like to keep her private life separate, she does not mind attending filmi functions along with her boyfriend.
Ileana also regards Varun Dhawan as boyfriend material. Incidentally Ileana says she doesn’t look for looks in a guy. She reiterates, “I don’t go by appearance. He has to be genuine, truthful and chivalrous. What puts me off is someone trying to be somebody he is not. My idea of Mr. Right is Varun. He is so disconnected from the film industry, so grounded. He knows his priorities and is a very good man. All his qualities are admirable. Also with Varun, I can be really about anything, I don’t have any barriers with him.’
Though she had movies with Shahid Kapoor (Phata Poster Nikla Hero) and Ranbir Kapoor (Barfi!), Ileana says that she did not get to interact with them as much. She adds, “Varun and I are almost the same age. It feels like we are college buddies”
