KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 24 — It’s official: Fattah Amin and Nur Fazura Sharifuddin are engaged.
They were first linked after co-starring in the hit TV drama series Hero Seorang Cinderella earlier this year but spent months coyly denying they were more than just friends.
But before fans can catch their breaths, the celebrity couple confirmed that their wedding might be just around the corner.
The 27-year-old actor and the 34-year-old actress met the press at the Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur hotel after their return from Mecca where they performed the umrah with their respective families.
While not revealing the exact wedding date, Fazura said: “If all goes well with the planning, it shouldn’t be long from now.”
Last week, the rumour mill went into overdrive with speculation that the couple known to fans as ‘Fattzura’ had secretly married after white canopies and wedding-like decorations were spotted at Fazura’s grandmother’s home in Petaling Jaya.
Fattah clarified that the gathering was to celebrate the couple’s engagement.
“On November 13, my family and I went to Fazura’s house to ask for her hand in marriage. Alhamdulillah the ‘merisik’ and engagement ceremony went well,” Fattah was quoted as saying at the press conference.
Fazura, meanwhile, also thanked fans for their support and good wishes.
“The past two weeks have been very colourful. Thank you for giving us the time and space to perform our Umrah. We appreciate it,” she added.
