POPULAR actor Remy Ishak may have gotten engaged to businesswoman Ezza Yusof in May last year, but the 36-year-old artiste said they have yet to set their wedding date.

“I have to get several things done first before I embark on this new chapter of my life. Firstly, I need to stabilise my finances. Then, I have to sort out my packed schedule. Currently, I have back-to-back filming, making it impossible for me to take time off, which also slows down any plans to tie the knot in the near future.

“Thankfully, my fiancée is understanding,” he said in an interview at Nouvelle Hotel in Sri Kembangan recently.

“When a couple goes through a long engagement period, they may face more challenges. But for me, I am willing to go through obstacles now than later. This is when you can see whether your future life partner is willing to go through all the ups and downs with you.”

Remy, who is currently filming The Legend Of Pontianak, a Malaysian horror film which stars Nur Fazura Sharifuddin, Nadia Aqilah and Hisyam Hamid, is also in Astro’s upcoming original series, Dosa.

The dark, action drama centres on a family conflict between four siblings and their single father. Dosa is available on Astro First beginning Feb 14.
