|Actress Veena Malik who loves attention and revels in the tag ‘Drama Queen’ is now set to tie the knot for real. Her Mr. Right is said to be Umar Farooq, a businessman.
Veena has been spotted with her Norway-based boyfriend a couple of times in the last few months and now the buzz is that the two are ready to take their relationship to the next level, but not anytime soon. We hear Veena and Umar plan to exchange marital vows in 2015, as Veena Malik presently needs time to devote to her career in Bollywood, which, despite no big hits, is going well.
Umar is said to be a Norwegian gold trader and real estate tycoon. He often visits India for business related matters. Reportedly, Veena Malik first met him in March 2013 through a common friend in Dubai. We hear it was Veena who fell for Umar’s charm. He, too, had feelings for her. The more time they spent together, the thicker their bond grew and the two are giving a serious thought to marriage.
Umar Farooq is said to be quite a reserved, though eloquent, fellow. He doesn’t want to attract unnecessary media attention and therefore the couple tries to dodge the paparazzi whenever they meet. Not long back they were spotted at Atlantis Dubai.
There hasn’t been any official confirmation of their marriage plans either by Veena Malik or by Umar.
In the past, Veena has dated Indian actor Ashmit Patel. She was also linked with filmmaker Hemant Madhukar.
