The lead couple, who will appear in Samir Karnik's Kyon... Ho Gaya Na! for the first time, are reportedly seeing each other. Vivek accompanied Ash to the Cannes Film Festival, where she was on the jury. He also stayed by her side for the entire time she was hospitalised after her accident on the sets of Khakee. Ash also supported Vivek when he was injured on the sets of Mani Ratnam's Yuva.

Meanwhile, Oberoi Sr will manage Vivek's as well as daughter Meghna's careers. An indiafm.com report says that Meghna is pursuing a career in singing. She has already cut an album, Vada Karo, and has recorded a song in brother Vivek's upcoming film, Masti. Composed by Anand Raaj Anand, the song will be picturised on Tara Sharma, who was seen in Om Jai Jagadish.
