Bollywood actress Kangna Ranaut poses at the opening of Levi's largest store in India, in Mumbai June 18, 2008.

The bikini girl of David Dhawan's upcoming film Rascals, Kangna Ranaut, recently revealed that she has been dating an Englishman for the last 18 months.

I find a long-distance relationship much better because I have been with men who can completely suffocate you and not give you space. And I want my space for sure, the 24-year-old actress said recently on Simi Garewal's chat show.

Kangna did not name her boyfriend, but she left a clue that her lover is a 28-year-old doctor-scientist who works at a laboratory and they have been friends for a while now.

It took some time to get to know each other. And then we travelled and lived together. His job is so demanding. He lives in a lab for days. It's worse than mine, said Kangna.

Meanwhile, the actress is not willing to marry anyone at this stage. It's not something which soon leads to marriage because that's not what I want right now in life, she said.

Kangna, who earlier dated actor Adhyayan Suman, declared: I've never been with somebody for so long. My relationships don't usually last beyond six months!

But Kangna is ecstatic with her present status. He is a good musician and plays the guitar, said the actress proudly.
