Bengali actor Paoli Dam, who made her sizzling Bollywood debut with Hate Story back in 2012, tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend Arjun Deb. The nuptial, which took place at Taj Bengal in her hometown Kolkata on Monday, was also attended by state chief Mamata Banerjee. While her wedding comes as a surprise for many, several pictures from the ceremonies prove why it was a typical traditional Bengali ceremony. The couple will throw a reception in Arjun’s hometown Guwahati on December 10, later this week.
Arjun doesn’t belong to the film industry. He is rather a restaurateur from Guwahati. Paoli reportedly met Arjun through common friends after her film Parapaar’s release in 2014 and hit off instantly.
Paoli made her acting debut in 2004 and went on to become a popular face on Bengali television with shows like Tithir Atithi and Sonar Harin. Her debut Bengali film Teen Yaari Katha began shooting in 2004 but released only in 2012. In the meantime, Agnipariksha became her first film to release in 2006. Her breakthrough role came in 2009 film Kaalbela. Her 2011 Bengali film Chatrak was also screened at the Cannes film festival, apart from film festivals in Toronto and the U.K.
The 37-year-old actor took to Hindi films playing a bold character in Vivek Agnihotri’s Hate Story. She later also appeared in Vikram Bhatt film Ankur Arora Murder Case apart from Gang of Ghosts and Yaara Silly Silly.
