Vivek Bumps Into Ex-Friend Grace With Yuvraj

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi had spurned ex-girlfriend Grace's marriage offer last year but this time he found her in the company of India's star batsman Yuvraj Singh at a night club in Goa, reports Mid Day which captured the moments on  celluloid. 

Grace is from South Africa. She's a professional surfing trainer and brand ambassador for sportswear manufacturer, Billabong. She met Vivek last year when he had gone surfing while shooting in SA for Prince of Thieves. She has even met the actor's family.

Grace was once quite serious about Vivek. "She was asking for a commitment. She loved him and wanted a marriage but VO felt he wasn't ready or as emotionally involved as her. She left South Africa (where she lives) to be with Vivek and was willing to change her lifestyle for him. But VO wasn't looking for a serious relationship then so they parted ways," adds the source.

Since then, Grace has moved on. "Yuvraj was seen last week in Goa with friends but was seen being very protective about Grace. He was seen introducing her as his fiancée.  Apparently, Yuvi has even introduced her to his mother and she dotes on Yuvraj's girlfriend. Their family astrologer says the girl will bring good luck to Yuvi's cricketing career," says the source.

Reveals the source, "Yuvi and Grace were partying  at a night club when they met Vivek. When VO came to know that the two were planning to tie the knot, he wished them well. After that, Grace spoke to Vivek a couple of times."

Yuvraj Singh's manager, Ambika Chauhan says, "It's not true that Yuvraj and Grace are dating each other. We were all hanging out in a group -- Bunty Sajdeh (Ambika's husband), Grace and Yuvi along with a few others. Yuvraj and Grace are just good friends.
