Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actor Karan Patel is all set to tie the knot with actress Ankita Bhargava, last seen as Latika in Ekk Nayi Pehchaan, instead of ladylove Kamya Punjabi.
Interestingly, she is the daughter of actor Abhay Bhargava, who essays the role of Karan's father-in-law, Mr Iyer, in the show.
Though the marriage date is yet to be fixed, the traditional roka ceremony is slated for March 14. The two met through their respective families. Karan confirms the report, saying: "Yes, Ankita and I are getting married."
The sudden announcement has set tongues wagging. Till recently, Karan, known for his flamboyant ways, was dating TV actress Kamya Punjabi. Buzz is that he suddenly decided to dump her and turn his attention to Ankita. The first indication that there was something amiss between Karan and Kamya was when he attended a Holi bash last week with Ankita and indulged in PDA.
Kamya was earlier married to lights designer Bunty Negi with whom she has a daughter.
