Reports state that there was widespread speculation in the Indian media regarding the status of the couple’s relationship, but they have now spoken openly about it. The actress and former Miss Universe 2000 split with her actor boyfriend Dino Morea, and was later seen with the tennis star on several occasions. Lara has also been in the middle of a controversy, with Bhupathi’s ex-wife Shwetha Jaishankar blaming her for the divorce with Bhupathi.
Lara told reporters that it was Mahesh who proposed to her during the 2010 U.S Open, and she said that the busy schedules will not see them marrying this year.
