Remember how Tujh Sang Preet Lagai Sajna fame, Puja Banerjee had swooned us with her multi-coloured lehenga and had made a style statement with her drop-dead gorgeous engagement attire in 2017? Puja had met the love of her life, Kunal Verma on the sets of her show, Tujh Sang Preet Lagai Sajna and after dating for nine years, they had exchanged the rings in 2017. Three years post being engaged, Puja and Kunal were pronounced husband and wife after a registered court marriage.

While Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma had planned for a traditional Bengali wedding ceremony, the pandemic 2020 had ruined their plans. After postponing their wedding plans twice, once due to professional reasons and the next time because of pandemic, Puja and Kunal had embarked on their journey of Mr and Mrs in February 2020 with a registered marriage and had announced the same on their respective IG feeds in April.
Four months after introducing each other as husband and wife and announcing their wedding, Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma had informed that they’re expecting their first child. Finally, Puja has also delighted her fans with a glimpse of her pregnancy journey and in the pictures posted by her from her staycation with Kunal, we can see her flaunting her pregnancy glow and baby bump. Thanking her friend, Nikhila Palat for oragnising a staycation for her and Kunal, Puja captioned her post as “A big thank u to @nikhilapalat & @tajlandsend for this #staycation and all the pampering as it was much needed to me especially in this time. #soontobemommy #soontobepapa #soontobeparents @kunalrverma.”
On August 16, 2020, Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma had completed three years of being engaged and to mark the same, Puja had posted their engagement video. Puja captioned the video as “Today we complete our 3rd year engagement anniversary @kunalrverma.” For her engagement ceremony, Puja had roped in the renowned designer, Rohit K Verma for her engagement ensemble and we must say, he had done 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 Banerjee’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 had 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!
Announcing that they’re expecting their first child, Puja Banerjee, in an interview with The Times Of India, had said, "Yes, Kunal and I are excited about entering this new, beautiful phase in our lives. I am in a happy space now, and have been enjoying my personal time. In fact, I have not stepped out of my apartment since April."
Speaking about her almost a decade-long relationship with Kunal Verma and how he has changed, in a better way of course, post-marriage, Puja Banerjee had remarked, "We have been in a relationship for almost a decade, but he is a different man after marriage. He is very supportive and loving, and takes even more care of me now than when he was a boyfriend." Revealing her baby shower and plans for a traditional wedding after the little one arrives, Puja had continued, “We had a lot of dreams for our wedding, and had planned everything to the T. However, the pandemic changed everything and even my mother, who lives in Kolkata, could not attend our registered wedding. I am hoping to have a regular ceremony and do my pheras with Kunal after the baby arrives. Hopefully, my mother will also be able to attend it.” (Also Read: Smriti Khanna Shares A Glimpse Of Her 'Baby Singer', Anayka, And We Can't Stop Adoring Her Cuteness)
