Ileana D'Cruz's alleged Australian boyfriend, Andrew Kneebone will be seen sharing screen space with his love in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K 's upcoming movie, "Happy Ending".

According to a source, Kneebone is making a special appearance along with the "Barfi" actress, who is playing the lead actress in the comedy flick. The film makers decided to cast Kneebone, who was present on the sets during the final shooting of the film in Los Angeles.

When the makers approached him for a special appearance, the professional photographer agreed for the role immediately. Rumour has it that the actress had given her beau some acting tips.

"Andrew used to drop in on the sets frequently during the last shooting schedule in Los Angeles. The makers decided to cast him on the spot. When they approached him for the role, he immediately agreed. Ileana is also believed to have given a few acting tips to her beau." Times of India quoted a source.

The actress, who is believed to have been in the relationship for over a year now, was spotted spending time with her beau on several occasions. While, some claim to have seen the duo spending New Year's eve together during the shooting of her flick " Phata Poster Nikla Hero", some spotted them at a restaurant in Bandra few months back. Both D'Cruz and Kneebone are occasionally seen attending filmi functions together.

"Happy Ending," co-produced by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan under the banner Illuminati Films, has Khan and D'Cruzin lead roles and Govinda, Ranvir Shorey, Kalki Koechlin as supporting characters. Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor Khan will also be seen doing a cameo.

Earlier, the "Phata Poster Nikla Hero" actress was rumored to be dating Ranbir Kapoor during the shooting of their film "Barfi". The stunning actress was later linked to Shahid Kapoor during "Phata Poster Nikla Hero". But all three later refuted these rumours.

The actress made her entry into Bollywood with Anurag Basu's "Barfi". The film released in 2012 was a major box-office success and D'Cruz received positive reviews from critics who praised her performance, as well as the entire team of the film. Since then, the actress has not looked back.

After the success of "Barfi", she was seen in Rajkumar Santoshi's action comedy, "Phata Poster Nikhla Hero" alongside Shahid Kapoor and later with Varun Dhavan in "Main Tera Hero" directed by David Dhawan.
