In an exclusive conversation with Bollywoodshaadis, Bulbul Saha recalled the time when she had met the love of her life, Arun Lal for the first time. Recalling her first meeting, Bulbul shared that she had met him via their mutual friends. They had gone to a common friend's party, there they had gradually started talking with each other, and soon they fell for each other.

What made Bulbul fall in love with Arun?

Bulbul recalled the tiny memorable incident about Arun which attracted her more towards him. Sharing how she fell for him, she said:

"It wasn't love at first sight, but we fell in love very soon. He is an extremely warm hearted person, he is an extremely good hearted person, and he has compassion for nature, animals, the poor, and the downtrodden. Supposes he is not carrying money and he is going in his car, and there are beggars, so he will almost scream at me, that give me your money, and he will start distributing it. Again he is extremely empathetic and sympathetic, so that's how I fell in love with him."

In the same conversation, Bulbul mentioned their farm in Raipur Burul, South 24 Paraganas, West Bengal. She shared that Arun Lal had taken this initiative along with several of his friends, and now he is the majority shareholder. Talking about the same, Bulbul shared that Arun's closeness to nature has attracted her to him. She added:

"No one knows that he has almost planted about 5000 trees. We have a farm, and the main aim is to gift something to the motherland. It is very close to Bawalii Rajbari, in Raipur Burul in South 24 Paraganas, and we name it the 'Papa's', it's a property on the Ganges, and we feel like it 'Baap Ka Sampatti', like God has given us, father has given us. And this humbleness of him is the thing which attracted me more towards him."

What is the one thing of Arun that annoys Bulbul?

On being asked about the various qualities which Bulbul finds annoying yet lovable in him, she expressed:

"There are two things which I want to share. As I said, at every traffic signal, there are beggars, and invariably he don't use to carry the 10-20rupess changes, and I used to travel in the public vehicles, and generally, I'm the one who needs these changes, so he will tell me- give give give, you have to give, you can't stop. So he got that attitude, now what say."

She also further added a love-filled action which is always done by the man of her dreams, Arun. She explained:

"When I'm very busy with work, and he will call me and call me, where are you and where are you, and then he will say that something terrible had happened, and then he will say like that. And soon, he will start joking. So I used to tell him, 'What the hell? Can't you leave me alone?' So this is one of the funny incidents which I can say."

Where do Arun and Bulbul like to spend time with?

Concluding the conversation, she mentioned her wedding and the busy schedule she is going through right at this moment. She explained:

"Our wedding will be a little in between an intimate ceremony and a grand affair. Arun and I will be having our family and close friends. And we did our Gaye holud ceremony one week before our wedding since I'm already overburdened with my work as being a teacher, this is the case with all my colleagues in the same profession, and I'm also training my students for Rabindra Jayanti, so I can't take an off in between. So this Sunday(May 1, 2022), we are having a court wedding in the evening, and this will be followed by the social marriage on Monday(May 2, 2022)."
