Puja Banerjee had roped in the renowned designer, Rohit K Verma for her engagement ensemble and we must say, he did an amazing work. Rohit had designed an oozing ensemble for Puja, which was a multi-coloured blue and red lehenga with a plain blue choli and a pink net dupatta. A mix of vibrant colours and intricate embroidery, Puja’s engagement lehenga was surely an eye-catcher for everyone. Puja had complemented her look with royal ethnic jewellery by Minawala, a renowned jewellery establishment, which perfectly blended with her Rajasthani-themed ensemble. Her engagement set was crafted with 24K gold, uncut diamonds, emeralds, rubies and pearls. She had adorned an elegant maang teeka and emerald cocktail ring. Puja had also worn a satlada, which is a layered piece of jewellery, setting a major trend for the bride-to-be!
In 2018, Puja Banerjee had revealed that due to professional reasons, she and Kunal Verma aren’t planning to get married. But finally, the wait is over as Puja announced on her Instagram handle that after more than two years of being engaged, she and Kunal are all set to tie the knot. Announcing the same on International Women's Day, Puja shared, “Big news on this women's day I want to share this with all of you @kunalrverma you complete me I have been a daughter, a sister, a friend, a girlfriend and now finally going to be a wife. It’s time to be together forever so are finally getting married. Need all of your best wishes.” Amidst the congratulatory messages that flooded her post, her fiancé, Kunal commented, “Let’s do this.” Through her Instagram stories, Puja also gave a glimpse of her ‘bride tribe’.
In a 2017 interview, Kunal Verma had expressed his feelings on being ‘just engaged’ to the love of his life, Puja Banerjee. Revealing how their relationship had become deeper with the engagement, Kunal had remarked, “Finally, I am engaged. I am actually feeling irritated seeing my ring finger as I am not used to wearing solitaire. It is hurting my hand, have already got two-three scratches. I asked Puja to get its edge smoothen because I am not used to it. I even asked her if I can take this thing out but she was like no no...then I asked my mom, she told me to wear it in front of Puja and then remove it (laughs). This is the only difference I see, otherwise, everything is same. We are still the same but it is just that the relationship becomes a bit deeper. I am liking it, it's been just a day.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan Shares Unseen Picture Of Her 'Love', Saif Ali Khan From Son, Taimur's Birthday)
In an interview with the Indian Express, Puja Banerjee had revealed how her small intimate roka ceremony changed into a grand engagement bash. She was quoted as saying, “We are getting engaged after nine years of being together. We will decide our wedding date on the day of engagement only. It was supposed to be a Roka but after we prepared the guest list it, Kunal thought that let’s turn it into a proper engagement ceremony since the marriage will be a private affair. We won’t be inviting many people then and it will only be a family affair. So, we decided to celebrate one function with everyone.” Speaking about the ups and downs in their journey, Puja had continued, “Every relationship goes through ups and downs and even we experienced a hard time. But I think the relationship grows stronger after it goes through a bad phase.”
How we had loved Simran’s nakhre on Karwa Chauth as she had kept a fast for her love, Raj, who had also secretly stayed hungry for her in the film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge! Didn’t we secretly hope for a partner, who would observe the Karwa Chauth fast with us? Puja Banerjee is one such lucky girl as her fiancé, Kunal Verma had observed Karwa Chauth fast with her, making it super-special for her. Revealing the same in a Karwa Chauth 2018 post, Puja had shared, “I have only seen this in movies and could never imagine I will actually get someone like you in my life. 2nd year in a row u kept fast for me and made my karvachauth better than anyone else's. I love you and I think u love me more @kunalrverma Can't thank u enough.” (Also Read: Richa Chadha Shares A Video Of Her Engagement Ring With Which Beau, Ali Fazal Popped The Question?)
