"Bigg Boss 8" contestant Sushant Divgikar is apparently planning to get engaged soon.

According to reports, the Mr Gay World 2014 participant wants to settle down with a South African businessman he met while at the pageant.

"'Sushant has been dating him since a long time now and plan to get engaged in December. They were even offered Nach Baliye this season, but Sushant turned it down because his partner did not want to get locked up in the house," The Times of India quoted a source as saying.

However, when contacted Sushant spoke about his elaborate birthday celebrations with friends but refused to talk about the engagement rumours.

"'It's too personal to talk about. I will comment when the time is right," he said.

Born on 2 July, 1990, the singer-VJ will jet off to Thailand with besties Sonali Raut, Diandra Soares, Deepshikha Nagpal and Rohit Verma.

In other news, right after his eviction from the high-voltage reality show, the former contestant was offered an opportunity to playback for a film, by Salman Khan.

"I'm really thrilled that Salman Khan has offered me a film as a singer. So, after doing that film and the song, I will retire (laughs). Honestly, this is one thing that is much bigger than anything else for me," he told TOI last year.

Sushant was one of the most-adored participants of season 8 and known for speaking his mind. Since he is a certified psychologist, he would easily read through co-members' intentions and arrange his game plan based on that.
