Ileana D'Cruz, who is currently promoting her upcoming film Pagalpanti, opened up about her breakup with longtime boyfriend Andrew Kneebone. In an interview, she said that relying on people is not an option because 'you have to rely on yourself', Ileana said. "I think you owe it to yourself to take care of yourself, and the minute I realized that I saw a huge difference; not just mentally, but physically and internally as well. If you are going through bad times, then you have to work on yourself. I can’t rely on people, because you have to rely on yourself," the actress was quoted.
After the breakup, Ileana deleted the pictures and posts with Australian photographer Andrew Kneebone on her Instagram handle. She also revealed that she visited a therapist to feel better. "I went to a therapist and she told me to accept the complements. I have accepted myself now and I am doing well," she told Deccan Chronicle.
"I never wanted to come out bitter or someone with any animosity. It has left me stronger. S**t happens, but life goes on. The way I dealt with the entire thing comes with respect and love for the other person. I don't curse or think anything bad about him. I am in a good place and I wish all good things for him," Ileana further added.
Ileana concluded by saying that she is not ready for love and is happy at the stage she is right now. She said, "Staying in love is a different thing. Having a partner makes you feel calm and secure but your mental well-being is far more important... I am not ready for love, I am very happy where I am. I am falling in love with myself," she added.
Ileana will be seen alongside John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, and Urvashi Rautela in the film titled Pagalpanti. This action-comedy is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Abhishek Pathak, Krishan Kumar and Kumar Mangat Pathak, and is set to hit the silver screens on November 22, 2019.
