Mumbai: The ‘Dev. D’ star Abhay Deol is all set to formalise his relationship with the long term girlfriend Preeti Desai. Abhay and Preeti have been dating each other for quiet sometime now.

Preeti was crowned Miss Britan and has been working in Bollywood for a while. A little while ago, there were rumours that the two have hit the rock bottom when Preeti walked the ramp at the Lakme Fashion week for designer Sabbah Sharma andt Abhay was nowhere to seen around despite being invited to the show. Abhay’s conspicuous absence lead gossip mills running overtime.

Also, there were rumours that Abhay was not happy with Preeti, who recently shot an intimate scene with Tusshar Kapoor in ‘Shor In the City’. It was on Abhay’s disapproval that Preeti asked her director to drop the scene from the film.

However, the two have emerged victorious against all rumours and are still going strong. A friend of the couple said to a daily, “Preeti and Abhay are with each other around the clock, despite having separate addresses. There has been a death in the family (Dharmendra`s elder sister passed away) and that`s why they are not rushing their engagement. When the family overcomes the sorrow, Abhay and Preeti will exchange rings, maybe later this month or in June.”

The source also added, “Abhay and Preeti have great compatibility. Both are impulsive, fun-loving people who love to travel and enjoy. They don`t have a big circle of friends and they like it that way.”
