Love hasn’t been easy for the couples in 2020 with the pandemic, but it has proved that no social distancing protocol can create ‘distance’ for the madly-in-love couples. Though a lot of couples who had planned to tie knots, have postponed and made adjustments in their dates, or have somehow figured out a way to get married. Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma too, became each other’s forever by tying the nuptial knot.
After dating for nine years, Puja Banerjee and Kunal Verma had exchanged the rings in a grand ceremony in 2017. Then when in April 2020 the couple had planned to tie the knot in a traditional Bengali ceremony, the lockdown was announced, ruining their wedding plans. With love by their side, Puja and Kunal had a registered marriage before the lockdown and in April 2020, they had introduced each other as husband and wife on their respective Instagram feeds.
