Well-known actress Namitha is to wed aspiring actor and producer Veera at a simple cermony in Tirupati on 24 November.

The actress, in a statement issued to the media, confirmed the news. She said, "I'm sure by now you have heard that Veera and I, are getting married on 24th November at Thiruppathi. Veera is my best friend and my soulmate.

"He is a producer and an aspiring actor. This alliance is an arranged/ love marriage. We were introduced by our best friend Sashidhar babu last year in September and little by little we became good friends.

"On 6 September 2017, Veera popped a question very romantically on the beach, where he had arranged a candlelight dinner for us. I was completely flabbergasted,  as I had not expected it.

"What made me say 'Yes' was that we share similar life goals and we both are spiritually awakened. We share a love for travelling, especially trekking and nature. We share love for animals and we both are passionate about life it self.

"I feel blessed to be with someone who makes me his priority. There was no running - chasing game. In the last three months, the more I understood him, the more I felt lucky to even be with him.

"My faith in men is restored again with his gentle care and support. I thank each and everyone of you, who has been my support system since day one and we both seek your love and blessings. Thank you. God bless you."

Namitha originally hails from Gujarat. She has done several films in Tamil but is most known for her roles in Aai (2004), Engal Anna (2004), Billa (2007) and Azhagiya Tamil Magan (2007).

At one point in time, she was very popular commanding a huge fan base in Tamil Nadu.

However, in recent times, she hasn't had too many films coming her way. She was more recently seen in the first edition of Tamil Bigg Boss.
