According to latest reports the two got engaged in New York while on a private trip. Mahesh made it official by tweeting, "So Lara and me got engaged in NY last week." Reciprocating the tweet Lara Dutta happily retweeted with a smiley. The couple were frequently seen together in public, be it any award function or any public gathering.
