Biker and actress Alisha Abdullah has got engaged to Naveen Devanraj on Monday, June 13. The couple's engagement ceremony was held at a beach resort in Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu.
Alisha Abdullah formally announced the news on her Facebook page and posted: "Finally hitched.. Thank u all for your prayers and wishes :) A big thank you to Karthik Srinivasan with his new wedding photography â€ª#â€Žmoonstruckweddings and Tara decors for this wonderful dreamy Venue- GRT temple bay.

The couple's engagement was attended by their family members and close friends. It is reported that they will tie the knot on Jan. 18 in Bali, Indonesia.
Alisha Abdullah, who is the daughter of famous bike racer and seven-time national champion RA Abdullah, is the first Indian female racing champion. The biker-turned-actress, who had passion for racing from early age, won many go-kart races before winning MRF National Go-Karting Championship and the Best Novice Award in the National level Formula Car Racing in the open class at the age of 11.
Her urge to make it big grew further after participating in the JK Tyre National Racing Championship. She achieved a lot of success as a biker till she suffered a terrible two-wheeler accident in 2010. Since then, Alisha Abdullah has shifted her focus on four-wheelers.
Alisha Abdullah also made her debut in films by acting in Atharvaa's "Irumbu Kuthirai." Currently, she is working in Vijay Anthony's "Saithan," which has Arundhati Nair and Meera Krishnan in the female leads. The film would be released in July.
