She is beautiful, she is gracious, she is super-talented, and above all, she is one of the kindest actresses that our Indian television industry embraces. We are talking about none other than, Naagarjuna fame actress, Pooja Banerjee.
The cutie pie Pooja surprised one and all when she got engaged to a handsome dude and a national level athlete, Sandeep Sejwal. Their engagement ceremony was a hush-hush affair, which was graced by just close family members from both the sides.
The lovebirds looked amazing in their engagement pictures. Don’t believe us, go through their engagement album and you will soon come to know why we are saying so!
Not just that, the couple has got an amazing pre-wedding photoshoot done recently, and it's mesmerising [To see the pictures, click here]. The duo is all set to take the wedding vows on February 28, 2017 in Delhi. And it’s going to be a grand affair in literal means.
Since the countdown has already begun for the D-day, we thought of contacting the actress and talk about her pre-wedding jitters, wedding shopping and much more. So, when we asked her if she is nervous for her wedding or is she experiencing pre-wedding jitters, pat came her reply:
“The thing is I’m so tired that there is no scope of actually feeling the nervousness. I have planned that every work should be done by 10 of February. So, maybe after Feb 10, I’ll get the time to actually feel something.”
Shopping during the wedding is one such period that mostly all the girls enjoy, especially shopaholic girls. And our beautiful Pooja is no exception! Even if the schedule is very hectic, she is enjoying the shaadi shopping spree to the fullest. In fact, she told us that she is the one who is planning everything for her wedding.

So, from where are you doing your trousseau shopping and what all have you bought?
“I’ve been travelling the entire last year. So, my trousseau is from Mysore to Jaipur to Ahmedabad to Calcutta to Delhi to Nagpur to Hyderabad. So, I’ve got Mysore silk from Mysore and I’ve got pattu pavadai from Hyderabad. Then I have got Lehariya and bandhej saree form Jaipur. Lucknowi silk and lucknowi chicken work sarees. Then, I’ve got Banarasi saree and Bangladeshi saree from Calcutta. And all the shimmery clothes from Delhi.”
Are you both going to colour-coordinate on your wedding?
“Not really! We are not colour-coordinating since we wanted it to be different because it should look like that we come from different backgrounds. It should look like that we are very different yet we are going to be together. We just want both our cultures to come across through our dressing too.”
What will you be wearing on your wedding day?
“I am going to wear a nice blood red lehenga. That red colour will for sure be there. And saree I have kept it for the Bengali functions.”
Tell us something about the functions?
“I have typical aai budo bhaat, which is a Bengali pre-wedding function for all the bachelors. So, in that the bride is fed for the last time as bachelor by the family and friends as well. And in this all the other unmarried women are also fed. So, basically all my unmarried friends will sit with me and will be fed along with me. And I have said all my friends and cousins to wear a red saree on this day.“
So, are industry friends invited?
“Yes, it will be a big affair. A good amount of people are invited. Friends from Swim Team, people from Naagarjuna, everyone close to me are all invited. Khuzema Haveliwala and Mir Mohsin Manzoor (directors of Swim Team) are invited. Friends from Roadies are also gonna be there and a lot of people. See, obviously that question still remains like who all would be able to make it for the day.”
What are your honeymoon plans?
“It’s a surprise. It’s a surprise from Sandeep. So, I really don’t know. He has taken my passport though, but I don’t know where we will be going.”
Well, Team BollywoodShaadis would like to wish this cutesy couple, Pooja Banerjee and Sandeep Sejwal all the very best for the new chapter of their lives. May you both be blessed with all the happiness in this world and a lifetime of togetherness. Much love!
