Producer Madhu Mantena is all set to marry designer Masaba Gupta in November. The wedding is being planned as a lavish affair. The engagement scheduled for March 10 at the Marriott hotel in Mumbai would be an intimate affair attended by close friends and family.
Says a close friend of Madhu, “Madhu has been feeling the urgent need to settle down. He wanted his earlier relationship too to culminate in marriage. Finally after years of searching Madhu has found Masaba. They are so alike it’s frightening.They seem to be born for each other.”
Happily, Mantena, a self-confessed family man, has adjusted very well to Masaba’s family.
“Madhu gets along very well with Masaba’s mom (actress-filmmaker Neena Gupta) . He has not met Masaba’s father (legendary cricketer Vivian Richards) yet, but is expected to do so soon,” says Madhu’s friend.
The guest-list for the engagement ceremony is being drawn up. The blissful couple will begin planning their November wedding immediately after the engagement.
