Mandana Karimi, who rose to popularity with her stint on the reality show "Bigg Boss 9," is engaged. The Iranian beauty has announced her engagement to boyfriend Gaurav Gupta on her social media account with some adorable pictures of the couple.

She also flaunted her ring on her finger in the photo with a caption that read: "On this special day, I just want to let you know I've had such an amazing time Annoying you over the year (2years) and I can't wait to annoy you even more in the future. Thanks for sticking around babe! Happy anniversary."

Gaurav is a businessman and the two had been dating for a couple of years. Mandana and Gaurav are set to tie the knot this year. "We have been dating for two years, tomorrow is our anniversary and he proposed to me today! I was shocked, but it feels so beautiful now. We were at a hotel and he went down on his knees holding my hand...It was so romantic," she told BollywoodLife.

During her stay in the Bigg Boss house, Mandana had mentioned about her boyfriend Gaurav to her fellow contestants. She would miss him in some instances.

On the work front, Mandana was in news recently when there were rumours that she will be a part of the dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9." However, it appears like the deal didn't go through as the former "Bigg Boss" contestant will not be participating in the show.

After "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3," the actress played a key role in "Xuanzang," a Chinese-Indian historical adventure film. Mandana has a three-film deal with Ekta Kapoor's production company, Balaji Motion Pictures. While she already starred in Balaji's "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3," the actress is yet to feature in the other two projects.
