Close on the heels of a Valentine’s Day engagement, reports say that Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra have set a marriage date for October this year.

“I have spoken to Shilpa’s parents and we are doing it the Indian way,” Kundra, a London-based jeweller and dealer of precious stones, has been quoted as saying in Daily Mail, UK.

Born and brought up in London, Kundra asked for Shilpa’s hand in typical Indian style. He met her parents and asked if they would give their consent to this relationship.

“In India you don’t get engaged until just before the wedding, so I didn’t go down on one knee to her or anything like that. But we have definitely set a date for this year,” he has explained further.

Back home, on Shilpa’s front there is stoic silence. However, a source close to the Shetty family has revealed that the family is excited and the preparations have already begun. “Though Shilpa is extremely busy with her film, The Man, and IPL, her mother, Sunandaji has already started preparations. Her first concern is a perfect venue as it is going to be a huge wedding.”
