"Yes, I am in a relationship, a serious relationship. We were planning to get married in 2014, but it didn't happen due to my prior commitments. I always wanted to be with a person who looks his life in a very matured manner," Bhavana had earlier said in an interview aired on Kappa TV.
On the career front, after wrapping up the shooting of Asif Ali-starrer Honey Bee 2, the sequel of comedy entertainer Honey Bee, Bhavana has joined the set of Prithviraj Sukumaran's next -- Adam. While Honey Bee 2 is scheduled to hit the screens on March 23, the actress is also awaiting the release of Malayalam movie Adventures of Omanakuttan.
