Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala will tie the knot with Samrat Dahal, a businessman seven years her junior, in a gala traditional ceremony on June 18.
The wedding will take place at the luxurious Gokarna Forest Resort in eastern Kathmandu and the guest list includes the who's of both Nepal and India, said family sources.
The 40-year-old actress, the grand daughter of Nepal's first elected Prime Minister Bishweshwor Prasad Koirala and niece of democratic leader Girija Prasad Koirala, will also throw a lavish party two days later at Hotel Soaltee Crowne Plaza.
The marriage which comes two months after the demise of Girija Prasad Koirala, will bring happiness to the Koirala family and Manisha's parents Prasad and Sushila Koirala will host all the ceremonies.
Manisha and Dahal, have been seeing each other over the past year and their wedding was fixed by an astrologer a few months ago.
The actress has evaded marriage over the years and broke off two prior engagements.
She was reportedly engaged to ex-Australian ambassador to Nepal, Crispin Conroy in 2001, but broke up with him soon. Last year too, the grapevine was abuzz with reports that Manisha will wed American speaker and author Christopher Dorris, but that relationship too ended.
