Bollywood beauty and L'Oreal cosmetics model Aishwarya Rai has announced her engagement to fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan. The former Miss World and leading Bollywood actress exchanged engagement rings with Abhishek at a small, intimate ceremony on Sunday evening.
Her manager Hari Singh confirmed to the Associated Press: "Yes, it is true. Abhishek and Aishwarya are engaged..."The wedding will definitely take place this year."
Abhishek is the son of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. Aishwarya, 33, and Abhishek, 31, have worked together in several Bollywood movies. News of the engagement ends months of speculation about the couple's relationship in India, where they are huge stars. Rumours about the couple ignited when the pair visited a Hindu temple together back in November 2006.
