Wedding date set for Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupathi 

January 7, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Pen Men at Work): Bollywood actress Lara Dutta and fiancé tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi have planned to take their relationship to the next stage next month. The date for the wedding has been fixed on the 19th of February and the vows will be taken in a ceremony held at a five star hotel in Goa. While Lara Dutta had called off her relationship with Kelly Dorje a couple of months back, Mahesh Bhupathi secured divorce from his wife of seven years, Shvetha Jaishankar, in the recent past.

According to close friends and family members, Lara and Bhupathi love Goa, therefore they decided to celebrate the auspicious day of their lives at the place which has already become their favorite haunt. It was in the month of September that Mahesh Bhupathi announced his engagement to Lara Dutta, revealing that the duo decided to tie the knot when they were holidaying in New York City.

Dutta will reportedly be shifting base to Mahesh Bhupathi’s house located in the Pali Hill region of Mumbai after the wedding vows are exchanged. The actress has in fact already started to decorate and design the interiors of the house where she will be entering just a month later.

The couple have made a number of public appearances together after announcing their engagement via Twitter and it is said that both get along very well with each other’s family members. Well, the couple are not only mad about each other but also made for each other if reports are to be believed. It is to be remembered that both Mahesh Bhupathi and Lara Dutta have had tumultuous personal relationships with their previous partners and therefore it is but natural for the tennis star to announce his New Year resolution, also via Twitter that he plans not only to get married but also to stay married!
