Actor Vishnu Vishal and his girlfriend badminton player Jwala Gutta are one of K-town's hit couples.

Previously, Vishnu Vishal was married to his college sweetheart fashion designer Rajini Natraj. However, after four years of courtship and seven years of marriage, they divorced in 2018.

Jwala Gutta also shares a similar past of a failed marriage. She married badminton player Chetan Anand in 2005, and the couple went separate ways in 2011. Vishnu's and Jwala's experience with divorce has made the couple bond well.

Recently, Vishnu went down on his knee to propose to Jwala on her birthday. Surprised, she said yes. Talking about their sudden engagement, Vishnu revealed that it was an impromptu decision.

"It’s her birthday today and at 11.30pm last night, I thought I should surprise her. I called our common friend and told him I needed a ring ASAP. He then got me this ring, which might not actually look like an engagement ring, but it’s the intention that counts, right?," he said.

Jwala admitted that she didn't expect the surprise.

"I was surprised he could keep this surprise for so long. We will be meeting our parents today. Usually, I celebrate my birthday in a grand manner. Even if I don’t have a party, my dad ensures he throws me one. But this time, we wanted it to be a quiet affair because of the pandemic. But it tuned out be another big occasions. I think celebrations never stop on my birthday,” Jwala exclaimed.

So, when is the big day? Vishnu wants to wait until things get better in the world. "We are not 100 per cent back on track and we want to hold till things are better. Our families have to meet and my sister has to travel from Singapore. But this is a great start, I feel,” he explained.
