Says a source close to the rumoured couple, “Zaheer and Isha’s relationship has always been talked about as the type that’s been a through a lot of off -and-on status. But whatever the status, they’ve been careful to keep it rather low profile. Despite the turbulent nature of their relationship in the past,the two have always hung on to each other.Even when they were not together, there was no real effort by the couple to date another person. Those close to the coupleinsist that the couple’s families have metand fixed up the last week of March for marriage ceremonies.”
The source adds further, “Though Isha isn’t too active in her acting career, Zaheer has been constantly playing for the Indian cricket team. He’scurrently in Australia for the Tri-series, and will be back in the first week of this month. Since the 20-20tournaments take off only in the first week of April, it’ll be easy to have a weddding by the end of thismonth. Though the wedding is said to be a private affair, the cricketer is expected to throw a gala reception for his fellow team- mates and friends, which also includesmany Bollywood celebs.”
