Elizabeth Hurley is taking Hindi lessons to impress her Indian boyfriend's family, sparking speculation the pair will marry.
The beautiful actress has been dating business man Arun Nayer since 2002 and has made several trips to his luxury mansion in Bombay.
Friends say the model, who has a two-year-old son Damian, is planning to tie-the-knot in the Indian capital this summer, in a ceremony which will coincide with her 40th birthday on June 10.
The 'Austin Powers' star, who lives in London, is said to be so smitten with the city, she and Arun have been house-hunting for a second home close to his family.
A friend revealed: "She loves everything about India and thinks she should learn some Hindi."
Meanwhile, Liz has confessed she only eats one meal a day so she can retain her stunning figure.
She admits she has struggled with her weight ever since she had her first child three years ago and has resorted to going to bed hungry to shed the pounds.
She said: "I maintain my figure by eating very little breakfast, not too much lunch. Then only tiny little snacks in the day, like a banana or six raisins.
"I'm on a good old-fashioned low calorie diet - I'm going to bed hungry."
