Just as we thought we had managed to survive the 21 days of lockdown, PM Narendra Modi addressed the nation once again and announced the extension of the lockdown period till May 3 However, the lockdown may have slowed down our day-to-day lives, but the spirit has not died yet. Amid all of this, actors Kunal Verma and Puja Banerjee have officially gotten married.
The telly town couple had pre-planned their wedding in April, all the arrangements had been done months prior to the wedding, but they had to cancel all the pre-wedding functions due to the sudden outbreak of coronavirus. The couple had registered their marriage earlier and hence decided to get married on the original date.
Both Kunal and Puja took to their social media accounts to share the good news with their friends and fans. The actors shared a happy picture and wrote: ‘This is a pic from last year durga puja sindoor khela. TODAY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR WEDDING BUT THE SITUATION IS SUCH THAT WE HAVE CANCELLED ALL OUR CEREMONIES ALTHOUGH WE HAD REGISTERED OUR MARRIAGE BEFORE A MONTH SO WE ARE OFFICIALLY MARRIED AND TOGETHER FOREVER NOW. WITH THE BLESSING OF OUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS WE STARTING OUR NEW LIFE NEED ALL OF UR BEST WISHES.

The couple also announced that they have decided to donate all the money that they were supposed to spend on their grand wedding.
Speaking to Spotboye about their marriage, Puja shared, “We had already done a court marriage, one-and-half months back. We hadn’t spoken about it to the world. Today, we were supposed to do our wedding rituals but had to call them off due to the lockdown. However, we will consider today (April 15) as our wedding.”
