It looks like Amrita Arora's relationship with her Pakistani-origin cricketer boyfriend Usman Afzaal is going strong. The actress plans to tie the knot with Usman, who played for England in 2001, in a couple of years.
"I'm certain this is the man for me. We'll make it legal whenever it's the right time for both of us," Amrita informs.
If Amrita marries Usman, she will be the second Bollywood actress after Reena Roy to marry a cricketer from Pakistan. Usman still plays in county cricket and has turned out for Northamptonshire.Recently, the besotted cricketer not only flew to Mumbai to be with the actress but actually accompanied her to the set of STAR Plus' quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) where she went to cheer her sister Malaika Arora Khan and brother-in-law Arbaaz Khan who were shooting for the friendship special episode.
"Not just Usman but also his brother from Pakistan. They were both down. So, when I decided to join my sister and Arbaaz on the sets of KBC Usman and his brother joined me there.
"Everyone else had their loved ones there - even Shah Rukh's wife Gauri had visited for this celebrity special. So why not me?"
Other celebrities to feature on the special episode are Karan Johar, Farah Khan, Farhan and Zoya Akhtar.
This was Amrita's first appearance on Indian television with her across-the-border beau.
The actress, who turned 27 on January 31, had to cancel her birthday party because of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation elections. But she promises she will soon throw a party.
"I was shooting for a new comedy Kuch Love Kuch Drama with Rajpal Yadav and a whole ensemble cast. They brought in a cake at midnight. It was fun. I'll have my birthday bash as soon as my new home is ready in a couple of months."
