Vivek gets Saathiya!

Word had been around that Vivek Oberoi’s parents were scouting for a bride for him. Their search, it seems, has ended in Bangalore. The 34-year-old actor, who hasn’t exactly been lucky in love, will settle down with Priyanka Alva, 28, sources say.
Priyanka is the daughter of well-known danseuse Nandini Alva and late Janata Dal (U) leader Jeevaraj Alva. Vivek will finally change his single status in the first week of September, with his engagement to Priyanka, who has studied in London. The wedding, sources add, is slated for October.
The match was apparently arranged with help from Bharatanatyam dancer and choreographer Padmini Ravi, a close friend and relative of Nandini. The grapevine has it that Nandini played matchmaker. However, Padmini said, “It wouldn’t be fair on my part to comment on this.”
Sources say that the bride-to-be’s “level-headed and intelligent.” “She’s non-filmi, sociable and sweet-natured,” they say. Vivek had earlier said in an interview that he wouldn’t mind marrying a girl of his parents’ choice.
The actor was engaged to model Gurpreet in 2002. The relationship didn’t work, neither did his supposed fling with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Vivek was then linked to many co-stars including Neeru Bajwa and Vidya Balan. The Alva family refused to comment for reasons of privacy, and Vivek was unavailable. Probably, he’s busy as he’s in good company.
