Model-actress Payal Rohatgi and her romantic squeeze Sangram Singh are finally engaged, reported Bollywood Life.

The 29-year-old model-actress has been co-habiting with the wrestler for quite some time back, so it comes as no surprise when the couple announced their engagement in Ahemdabad on 27 February on Rohatgi’s Twitter.

“Today on this auspicious day of Mahashivratri I am engaged to my jaan Sangram Singh. Thank you Lord Shiva for your blessings always,” she posted.

The couple met on the set of the reality television show “Survivor India” in 2011, and they started dating a year later. The two also starred in Krishan Kumar’s romantic thriller film “Valentine’s Night” together, although it ended up being critically panned.

Rumours are rife that Taiwanese actress Annie Yi is currently cohabiting with boyfriend, Chinese actor, Qin Hao.

The couple, who recently surprised many by walking together at the red carpet of the Berlin Film Festival recently, was spotted shopping for groceries together near Annie’s apartment.

The 44-year-old Annie looked much younger in her pink sweater and ear muffs, while her younger beau followed close behind, carrying all the groceries back to her place.

The sight of the two of them acting smitten at the supermarket has sparked rumours that the two have already taken their relationship to the next level, and are now living together.

However, both Annie and Qin Hao’s manager denied the rumours, saying that the two of them have their own places in Beijing.

Annie Yi met Qin Hao after working together in “Spring Fever” in 2008. She was previously married to Taiwanese singer, Harlem Yu.
