"We are enjoying a new life in Hollywood. We are also focused on house hunting."

Siva is looking at starting a solo career - Nareesha is already an accomplished shoe designer.

"We decided to come back to Hollywood because it's the best place for me to work on my solo album and develop my acting career," Siva said.

proposing to her at his own surprise
