London: Jimi Mistry, the Indian origin star of Hollywood flicks like `The Guru` and `2012` is reportedly romancing Flavia Cacace, his partner in the reality TV show `Strictly Come Dancing`.

The Italian-born dancer was photographed enjoying an intimate evening with Jimi Mistry after they attended a fashion gala together.

The couple, who were kicked off the BBC Saturday night series two weeks ago, were guests at the 20th Annual Drapers Fashion Awards in London.

The couple were keen to avoid the bank of photographers waiting at the front of the building and asked organisers to let them go in through a back entrance so they weren`t pictured arriving together, reported a website.

The 37-year-old actor has been single since ending his marriage to wife Meg Leonard nearly four years ago and has a nine-year-old daughter.

Cacace meanwhile has a long history of romancing her dance partners.

In 2007, she broke off her 11-year relationship with Vincent Simone to begin a romance with former Eastenders actor Matt Di Angelo, her partner on `Strictly`.

She broke up with Angelo two months ago, citing work overload and distances.

"It was due to our work, travelling so much and being away from home so much. We are still in touch and very good friends," said the 31-year-old dancer.
