Priyamani gets engaged to longtime boyfriend Mustufa Raj

South Indian actor Priyamani got engaged to boyfriend Mustufa Raj on Friday, May 27. According to reports, the engagement was held at Priyamani's residence in Banashankari, Bengaluru. It was a private event, which was attended only by their relatives and close friends.

Priyamani took to Twitter to share the picture of the special day. The Chaarulatha actor wrote, "Happy to announce that Mustufa Raj and I got engaged on Friday the 27th at a close and private function at home! (sic)."

The buzz is that the couple will tie the knot by the end of this year. Priyamani, according to a source close to her, met Mustufa during Indian Premiere League (IPL) a few years ago.

"Mustafa's association with IPL is via his event management company. Priyamani had met him during a match in Bangalore a few years ago. Since then they've been dating and finally decided to settle down," the source told IANS.

In an earlier interview to the Times Of India, Priyamani had said, Initially, I sent him a text saying that I liked him, which, even today, he thinks was a joke. I professed my feelings for him when we met the next day, but he realized how serious I was only after a couple more months."

After Priyamani broke the news of her engagement on internet, actors like Genelia Deshmukh and Lakshmi Manchu took to Twitter to wish the couple luck for their future.
