The COVID-19 outbreak has paused our normal daily life. The microbe from Wuhan, China has spread all over the world and has made us all stay inside our homes. It has ruined everyone's plans and especially, the ones, who were all set to tie the knot in the month of April. Marriages in the times of quarantine seems a distant dream. But no social distancing can ever become a wall between a madly-in-love couple. And Tujh Sang Preet Lagai Sajna fame co-stars, Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma are a perfect example of it.

For those who have no idea, Puja and Kunal were going to tie the knot on April 15, 2020. But with the coronavirus outbreak in the nation and the lockdown, the duo had cancelled all their ceremonies. But on the same day, Puja had shared a throwback picture with the love of her life, Kunal and had announced the news of her registered marriage, which had happened a month-and-a-half ago.
Recently, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Puja shared the thought behind their decision and said, "We obviously wanted a grand affair. I was waiting for this day for ages, we really wanted to celebrate it, but the circumstances are such that we couldn't help it." She further added, "Actually, when we registered for marriage like a month ago, we considered the time we would need to go through the process as it takes time for marriage to get registered at court and we wanted to do it before I start working on my new show as later I wouldn't get the time. We finished the formalities before I started shooting and we were supposed to have a grand affair on April 15. Then, we pushed it to April 26 but the lockdown is just getting extended. Now, the scenario is such, we don't think things are going to normalise for months. So, we thought, let it be, celebrations can happen anytime. Just not the right time for it. So, right now, whatever money we have, we have been trying to help whoever we can reach out to."

Puja also shared that she never thought she would be getting married in such circumstances, "I can't imagine. The wedding day was like my dream. I had planned everything. I was so excited. Starting from the venue, food selection, costume, jewellery, I was into it; we had paid in advance. We had done bookings and all. We had plans of having functions for three days, sangeet and everything but we had to cancel everything. We will celebrate once everything normalises."
Puja also revealed the post-marriage changes and shared, "I haven't shifted as yet. But Kunal comes and meets me every day as our buildings are next to each other. He stays with his parents right now. I will shift properly once the lockdown is over. Once I shift and start living like a daughter-in-law, I might feel different. But yes, one difference is that I am wearing sindoor and everything, it feels different. I feel we have more rights and love for each other."
