From the time Esha Deol got engaged to businessman boyfriend Bharat Takhtani, fans have been curious to know the wedding date. So it looks like we finally have a clue!

After what actress Hema Malini has told some reporters, it seems the couple's wedding date is not far, and in fact could be as soon as before the monsoon.

It is better if they get married as soon as possible. Why delay, when everything is in place? We're looking at a date before the monsoon. But it would depend on whether we are able to arrange everything within a few months. We also need to get the hotel booking done, Hema Malini was quoted as saying by IBN Live.

The Web site also sighted some sources saying that an astrologer will find a suitable date for the wedding.

Hema Malini added that the wedding will take place in Mumbai but not at her residence. It will be attended by friends and family from both sides.

She said, I couldn't invite anyone from the film industry for the engagement. But the wedding has to be lavish. We can't have it in the bungalow. It has to be at a hotel, according to the report.

She also said that both Sindhi and Tamilian rituals will be observed on the big day.
