Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma were all set to have a grand Indian wedding in April. But due to the coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown that followed, the two married privately in a super small ceremony. And now, the two are waiting to welcome their first child! Yes, Puja Banerjee is pregnant.
Talking to Bombay Times, the TV actress confirmed the news and 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.” The actress was working in Maa Vaishnodevi but quit the show. She asserts that it wasn’t because she did not want to work during pregnancy but more because of the pandemic and hopes to get back to work by next year.
The actress, who is also popular because of her stint in Bengali films, also hopes to have a full-fledged traditional wedding at least after the baby arrives. She added, “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.”
