While ardent viewers of Bigg Boss are occupied with the current season of the controversial show, Mandana Karimi, who rose to fame with her stint on Bigg Boss 9, is set to get married.

The Iranian beauty, who got engaged to boyfriend Gaurav Gupta earlier this year, will tie the knot early next year. When SpotboyE contacted Mandana and asked about her work, the actress said: "I am actually busy planning my wedding so that's taking most of my time. I plan to get married by the end of January or anytime in February next year."

"Last year on Diwali, I was in the Bigg Boss house and I was missing all my loved ones. But I'm very excited that this time I will be celebrating it with Gaurav and family. I am planning to throw a party too for friends during Diwali," she added.

Mandana had announced her engagement on social media with some adorable pictures of her flaunting the ring on her finger. Gaurav is a businessman and the two have been dating for a couple of years. During her stay in the Bigg Boss house, Mandana had mentioned about Gaurav to her fellow contestants.

After Bigg Boss 9, Mandana was seen in Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3. Later, she played a key role in Xuanzang, a Chinese-Indian historical adventure film.

There are reports that the actress has a three-film deal with Ekta Kapoor's production company, Balaji Motion Pictures. While she has already starred in Balaji's Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3, the actress is yet to feature in the other two projects.
