Model-turned-actress Diana Penty will reportedly tie the knot with boyfriend Harsh Sagar soon.

Penty, who made her foray into acting through "Cocktail" (2012), is ready to settle down with long-time boyfriend Sagar, a diamond merchant by profession.

"Diana and Harsh are deeply in love and they are all set to get hitched. Both of them are excited about their marriage. Harsh has been a pillar of strength for Diana all through," a source informed Mid Day.

The pair has been seeing each other for sometime now, and wedding reports of the couple surfacing now is quite understandable.

It was earlier reported that the actress' involvement with Sagar had prevented her from signing up for new films. It is understood that the actress' boyfriend is uncomfortable with the idea of Penty romancing actors onscreen, and rather wants her to stick to her modelling career.

The 28-year-old's absence from films after "Cocktail" was starkly noticed, especially since the actress was nominated for major awards for her debut film. Post "Cocktail", the model has featured prominently only in advertisements of a cosmetic brand.

Not many know that Penty was the original choice for the female lead in Imtiaz Ali-Ranbir Kapoor team's "Rockstar" (2011). But she turned down the film, owing to her modelling commitments, and debuted through the Homi Adajania directorial later.

Meanwhile, Sagar also has a film background as the businessman is the nephew of filmmaker Chandra Barot, who had directed the superhit "Don" (1978), featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Zeenat Aman and Pran.
